Fedora 9 won´t boot kernel on Bion notebook PC
I´ve been trying to run the Fedora 9 KDE-live-i686 distro on my new Bion notebook. I get the opening menu and have successfully run memtest. However, after loading vmlinuz0 and initrd0.img and decompressing linux it hangs when trying to boot the kernel.
CPU type: Intel Pentium
Dual CPU T2370 @1.73GHz
Processor: Intel Centrino + Core
IDE Channel 0 Master
Optiarc DVD RW AD-7560A PM
Transfer mode: FPIO 4/DMA 2
Ultra DMA mode: Mode 2
Sata Port 1: Samsung HM121HISI
Transfer mode : FPIO4/DMA2
Ultra DMA mode: mode 6
System memory: 640kb
Extended memory: 1,920MB
PhoenixBios Setup Utility
BIOS version 1.12
EC Version 1.11
try the x86_64 version instad of the i686. i'm pretty sure that should fix it
Thanks for your suggestion, which I followed.
Unfortunately, it still hangs when trying to boot the kernel. However this time it also gives the message: "Kernel alive".
I´d be grateful for any further suggestions.
change sata settings to ahci in bios
try boot time kernel parameters for sata, resolution=1280x1024,
remove 'quiet' and take a look at the exact messages
"nosmp" works but...
I tried different boot time kernel parameters and "nosmp" gets the kernel to boot. I get the login prompt but am unable to start or configure Xorg.
I wasn´t able to change sata settings in bios.
I get messages:
Failed to load module "intelmaster" (module does not exist)
Failed to load module "intelbatchbuffer" (module does not exist)
open /dev/fb0: no such fike or directory
Fatal server error: caught signal 11. Server aborting
hpet_acpi_add: no address or irqs in _CRS
Buffer I/O error on device sda.
"Nosmp" works with the i686 as well.
I finally managed to get xserver working by
And I´ve now installed Fedora 9 x86_64 on the notebook. Next step is to get all the hardware working properly.
Thnaks to Amani and Soppy for their help.
