Hate to be just another "MeToo", but ...
Mine's a Via Epia (Mk1) which installed and ran FC5 no problem.
I'm using LVM2 on the Via PATA controller, and everything is pretty standard for this board, as I said - no problems with FC5.
But with F7:
- The i386 LiveCD spontaneously reboots just after loading the kernel
- The i386 install DVD installs OK, but then after reboot the boot hangs with "could not find filesystem '/dev/root' "
The most promising solution seemed to be this one:
But that didn't work at all.
Then I discovered this:
So it's possible the new libata stuff is responsible.
Oh and please no suggestions about "maxcpus", "noapic", "acpi", etc. I've tried everything right down to waving a rubber chicken ... no joy ... kernel-2.6.21 sucks.
Oh well, I guess I'll just have to wait for the respin.
