I have an Asus K8V SE Delux with AMD Athlon 64, one S-ATA harddisk and an
Adaptec 29160 wich is only connected to an DLT streamer. The system
works fine until I have updated the kernel to kernel-default-2.6.5-7.75
via YAST Online-Update. After this update the system hangs during boot with
"ReiserFS: hda2: checking transactions log (hda2)"
hda2 is your root ?
Yes, it is.
as the last message. There the system stands forever.
Did you try pci=noacpi ?
So far, I have only try the "failsafe" settings together
(ide=nodma apm=off acpi=off )which make things even worse.
The system than hang trying to initialize the pci bus.
If that doesn't help please boot into single user
mode with the adaptec by
specifying single on the boot loader prompt, then do
echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq
echo 9 > /proc/sys/sysrq-trigger
mount -n -o remount,rw /
(if hda2 wasn't your root do mount /path/to/hda2mountpoint )
Does it already hang?
Are there are any messages on the screen?
Hmm to try this, I have to reinstall the the update which I
wouldn't like at this time, because the system is in use at
the moment. Perhaps I have time to try this at the weekend.
If it hangs do alt-sysrq-t and check for the backtrace
mount process and report that.
Best would be if you could connect a serial console before this
to catch all messages.
Thank you for your suggestions, I hope I find time to try them out
at the weekend.
