ata2 timeouts, fails to boot
Binary package hint: linux-image-
When loading 2.6.19 on my system after a fresh dist-upgrade to feisty, it stalls when it's loading the ata2 drivers. There's a few informational messages that go something like this:
ata2.00: ATAPI, max UDMA/33
and it apparently tries to load some drivers (or maybe it's searching for drives) and stalls (doesn't do anything).
After a couple of minutes, it times out and prints this message:
ata2: failed to recover some devices, retrying in 5 secs
ata2.00: configured for UDMA/33
and then repeats the cycle a few more times before continuing. After it makes it past this, it attempts to load the USB drivers, and stalls once again after loading the USB HID core driver (but no error messages). After this, it prints the following message:
Alert! /dev/hda5 doesn't exist
(/dev/hda5 is my root mount point)
and loads BusyBox and drops to a shell (ash) with the (initramfs) prompt.
I figure it's attempting to (and failing to) detect my hard drive(s). Rebooting to 2.6.17 works fine.
