2.4.4-ac11 initrd image load from floppy hang keyboard

Mon, 21 May 2001 18:28:28 -0400


I tried 2.4.4-ac11, plain kernel for booting custom installer, and loading an

initrd image from a secondary floppydisk, using syslinux 1.62 to boot the kernel.

These parameters were used:
ramdisk_start=0 load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=1 ramdisk_size=12288 root=/dev/fd/0

This resulted in hanged keyboard, no response. But screenblanking obviously

worked as the screen blacked out after some time.

But the keyboard no response, not even Ctrl + Alt + Del worked.

The same kernel configuration on vanilla 2.4.4 worked fine.

So... something is terribly wrong here.
