Summary: Intel 855GM fails to boot X due to kernel
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.3
Version: Milestone 4
Platform: i686
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.3
Status: NEW
Severity: Critical
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Kernel
AssignedTo: kernel-maintainers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:
Gecko/2009102100 SUSE/3.0.15-0.1.2 Firefox/3.0.15

A Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 7400M laptop can not boot to X with an of F3/F4 live CD
boot options in 32-bit openSUSE-11.3 milestone4 live CD. It is possible to
boot to run level 3.

This bug report may be similar to a bug report raised on openSUSE-11.2 (passed
upstream), except its symptoms are more serious in 11.3. 11.2 similar bug
report is here:

In openSUSE-11.2 it was possible to boot with option acpi=off, or with patience
boot in Safe Mode. This does not work in 11.3 milestone4.

According to the bug raised on the kernel, there may be a patch, but custom
compiling a kernel is beyond my expertise:

Output of "lspci -nn" on this laptop, illustrating graphic hardware detail:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM
Integrated Graphics Device [8086:3582] (rev 02)

I will understand if this bug report is closed due to the problem being
upstream, but I thought important I do document the bug still existing in
openSUSE 11.3.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Simple boot from a liveCD, any boot option.
Actual Results:
PC always fails to boot X. .

Expected Results:
PC should be able to boot to X. It can not with any option.

This laptop boots fine with openSUSE-11.1, but
