Subject2.4 kernel halting...
Hi, I'm having problems getting anything from
2.4.0-test12 onward to get past the IDE detectin phase
of bootup, and not even 2.4.0-prerelease will work,
either. At the bottom of this is the output of dmesg,
on my current kernel (2.4.0-test11), with the spot
where test12+ freezes indicated. btw...does anyone
out there know how to capture output on a bad kernel;
since the one I'm having trouble with never gets far
enough for me to check for an oops with an externel
program? You can locate the point where I get the
freeze by the whole line of '*' to show where it locks
up. Also, please forward any replies to my e-mail
since I don't subscribe to linux-kernel due to
excessive traffic on my end. Thanks, and below is
dmesg output...
