Description mypersonalmailbox1 2012-10-24 05:22:14 UTC

I will like to report that when I try to boot Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS 32-bit from a hard drive on a system with Diamond Multimedia Speedstar A50 (SiS 6326 AGP 8MB SDRAM, AGP 3.3V) graphics card and Intel D815EAA2 mainboard (Intel 815E chipset), the system will crash during boot in a few seconds.
Floppy disk drive indicator light goes on and stays on.
I won't even see the Ubuntu graphical logo on the screen.
However, if I boot Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS 32-bit from a DVD, then it will boot fine.
I also happened to own a PCI version of SiS 6326 AGP graphics card called Palit AGP6326 graphics card (SiS 6326 AGP, PCI card, 4 MB FPM or EDO DRAM).
This card will boot fine with either DVD boot or hard drive boot.
Based on these results, I suspect there is a bug in either Intel AGP GART device driver or Intel PATA device driver for ICH2 southbridge.

System Configuration 1:

- Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS 32-bit
  * All updates issued as of 10/15/2012 have been applied.
- Intel Pentium III 1 GHz
- Intel D815EEA2 mainboard
  * BIOS Version P21-0039 (last BIOS release)
  * Power -> ACPI -> ACPI: S3 State
  * Power -> ACPI -> Video RePOST: Off
- 512 MB PC133 SDRAM
  * 256 MB module
  * 128 MB module
  * 128 MB module
- Diamond Multimedia Speedstar A50 graphics card
  * SiS 6236 AGP
  * Chip Revision H0
  * 3.3V AGP card
  * 8 MB SDRAM
  * VGA BIOS Version 1.22a
- Gateway EV700 17 inch VGA monitor
- Seagate ST320414A 20 GB PATA hard drive
- Pioneer DVR-105 PATA DVD-RW drive
- Toshiba XM-6402B PATA CD-ROM drive
- PS/2 keyboard
- PS/2 mouse

System Configuration 2:

- Palit 6326AGP graphics card
  * SiS 6236 AGP
  * Chip Revision H0
  * 5V PCI card
  * 4 MB FPM or EDO DRAM
  * VGA BIOS Version 1.28q
- Other than the graphics card, the system configuration is identical to System Configuration 1.

Note that if I am correct, there are SiS 6326/6326 AGP/6326 DVD.
Both of the graphics card had a SiS 6326 AGP chip even though one of them was a PCI card.

The archive file uploaded is a collection of log files from Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS 32-bit's ubuntu-bug.
Because I can upload only one file at a time, I decided to zip it into an archive file.
