BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0 and BUG: spinlock recursion on CPU#0 ...


Hello everyone,

I installed Fedora 5 on my machine and it doesn't boot successfully. When it says "Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.", it stops for maybe a minute and then it shows following error messages:

BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0!

BUG: spinlock recursion on CPU#0, swapper/0 (Not tainted)
lock: c035ef80, .magic: dead4ead, .owner: swapper/0, .owner_cpu: 0
Kernel I am using is version 2.6.15. I think there might be a problem with my disk drive. While installing, it also stuck for some minutes when looking for a hard drive type.

Could there be a problem also because I have a dual boot system on one physical disk - with Windows XP?

I also tried to install Fedora 4 twice, and it also couldn't boot or took a really long time to boot.

My Windows XP, NTFS partition, works fine.

Most likely a driver problem. Make sure you're using the latest stable versions of your disk drivers (i.e. try FC6). What kind of disk are you using?

Try installing this RPM: http://fr.rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/sour...36-1.i386.html

It provides software to control and monitor drives like yours, according to the description.
