I never resolved the 2.6.34 not booting issue (more from lack of time and
motivation than anything else) so I haven't had to worry about it.
if I upgrade my kernel then I'll have to recompile the custom v4l2 drivers
and libs that I need to support my DVB-T card and that is not something
I fancy doing.
I have the exact same problem with 2.6.34 and my radeon card in my
laptop. 2.6.34 will boot exactly *once* after the initramfs is built, but
starting with boot No.2 on, the laptop hardlocks on boot with 2.6.34. It
works wonderfully with 2.6.33. I have a bug report open at Arch Linux on the
issue. I haven't loaded suse on this laptop yet.
The hardlock during boot occurs immediately after the loading modules
line (obviously it is a module issue) and with the move of more modules into
the kernel, it has become a kernel issue. So when I boot 2.6.34, I get to
the point where the boot message "Configuring console for UTF-8 mode" is
showing and then box just freezes. (load modules is one or two lines before
and since boot operates in parallel mode, whatever is locking the box lets
me get one or two more lines down the boot process before freezing.
Let me know if you find anything out and I'll do the same as I get
more info from the bug at flyspray...
If you've got an 11.3 install that's hard locking or showing random
CPU at 100%... have you tried 2.6.35 from Kernel Head?
I ask because I had similar problems and they all went away with
I went to 2.6.35 for other reasons (it fixes a bug in the kernel that
affected games in Wine/Cedega/CXGames (eg StarCraft2 and World of
Warcraft)... the side effect was that 11.3 started behaving well.. no
So.. if this solves the prob, then there might be a clue in the change
log between 2.6.34 and 2.6.35?
