Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 4824
Machine will not boot when using 188.8.131.52
Last modified: 2005-07-22 10:38:49 UTC
Distribution: Gentoo Linux (With kernel.org vanilla kernel )
Hardware Environment: Athlon XP-M 2100+
HP Pavilion Ze4400
Software Environment: Gentoo Linux
When booting my machine it hangs after finding the ALI Chipset, but before it
finds the hard drive hda.
Steps to reproduce:
Reboot Machine with 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11 boots fine)
Is this a vanilla ftp.kernel.org kernel or a Gentoo kernel?
In the latter case, does a vanilla ftp.kernel.org 18.104.22.168 exhibit this problem?
Which gcc version are you using?
The 22.214.171.124 -> 126.96.36.199 patch touches only 7 files (excluding the version
change in the main Makefile). Can you find the file whose change broke your booting?
Please attach dmesg output of a 188.8.131.52 boot.
it is a vanilla ftp.kernel.org kernel
gcc version 3.3.5-20050130 (Gentoo Linux 184.108.40.20650130-r1,
I dont have access to the logs right now but I will when I get home.

Modprobe output for a 220.127.116.11 kernel
When trying to boot 18.104.22.168
it hangs at line:
170 of the attached file.
22.214.171.124 does not boot also for me! With the same .config, 126.96.36.199 boots
HP Omnibook xe4500: P4-1700, chipset ALi M1671, ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY,
ALI15X3 IDE controller.
The boot process freezes after the kernel has found my IDE controller. No log
entries because the logger is not yet started at this time.
This is the vanilla kernel from kernel.org.
gcc version 3.3.4, slackware 10.1.

al_pavel: dmesg output when using 188.8.131.52
After i have reverted the patch for drivers/pci/pci-driver.c (',' -> ';'), the
kernel 184.108.40.206 boots succesfully (i' using it currently)... 8(
More accurately: TWO patches should NOT be applied: drivers/pci/pci-driver.c AND
(!!) drivers/acpi/pci_irq.c. The configuration "all patches but
drivers/pci/pci-driver.c" DOES NOT boot on my machine!
Thanks for this information.
I'm reassigning this bug to Greg who is both PCI maintainer and maintainer of
the stable 2.6.12.x tree.
One more question:
Is undoing the drivers/acpi/pci_irq.c patch alone enough for fixing the problem?
On a Dell PowerEdge 2850 server with raid controller, a vanilla 220.127.116.11 kernel
crashes at startup.
Some output from dmesg:
ICH5: IDE controller at PCI slot 0000:00:1f.1
PCI: Enabling device 0000:00:1f.1 (0005 -> 0007)
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:1f.1[A]: no GSI - using IRQ 0
The crash seems to happen a little bit later in the megadriver_mbox module.
acpi_register_gsi(dev->irq, ACPI_LEVEL_SENSITIVE, ACPI_ACTIVE_LOW);
in pci_irq.c fixes the problem.
Another option is changing the check "dev->irq >= 0" to "dev->irq > 0"
Yes, the solution
> changing the check "dev->irq >= 0" to "dev->irq > 0"
works for me (on 18.104.22.168, without any other changes).
Yes this patch fixed the problem for me as well...=)
22.214.171.124 problem confirmed on presario 2519eu laptop, fortunately linus's
apparently solves the problem.
Before that, pressing any key eventually unblocked the boot, until another
stage got blocked again, etc. Usually it happened right after hotplug was
trying to probe usb.
This problem should be fixed in both 126.96.36.199 and 2.6.13-rc3.
