I installed Kernel 2.6.34-rc2 on three systems (all 11.2 with Kernel:HEAD
repo). Two of them do not have any problems - they seem even a bit faster
compared to 2.6.33.

But on one system (MSI K7T Turbo [MS-6330] with a AMD Duron 900) the
kernel hangs at an early stage (all flavors). It is so early that I cannot
provide any logs and only the reset button works then.

Can you please tell me what I have to do for providing useful information?

Btw. I am not really familiar with kexec and kdump ...

Does the boot splash screen come up? If so, hit ESC to clear it, then
report the
last line output. If that line is "Loading basic drivers", you might try
"ipv6.disable=1" to the GRUB option line before booting.

I use every time "splash=0"

The other options are to set up netconsole or a serial console to capture
boot log.


What I can read on screen without times (I hope there are not any typos ...):

Is this due to missing disk drivers in initrd? The missing modules from mkinited
also reinforce this idea. What are the PCI ID's in the first line of 'lspci
-nnv"? On my computer, it shows up as "00:06.0 IDE interface [0101]: nVidia
Corporation MCP67 IDE Controller [10de:0560] (rev a1) (prog-if 8a [Master SecP
PriP])", where 10de:0560 are the important numbers. With those, we can determine
which driver 2.6.34 uses for your disk.
