Description Joshua Hoblitt 2007-04-14 02:27:53 UTC
Ironically, this is captured from the serial console:

The system is hosed (and remote) at the moment but I can provide the .config if need be (just not right now)

Reproducible: Always

The motherboard is a Tyan S2927 running BIOS v1.04.
Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-14 06:49:47 UTC
Still a problem w/ 2.6.20-r5?
Comment 4 Joshua Hoblitt 2007-07-19 00:20:22 UTC
This issue is resolved with the serial console changes in 2.6.22.
