"calibrating delay loop..." hangs on boot
Posted on 2003-03-01
I just attempted to upgrade from kernel 2.2.12 to the newest 2.2.23.
According to RedHat (yes, that's the distribution) I've installed all required updates in order to do so (most of which I had alread upgraded to or beyond the recommended version):
So...I go through the routine of compiling the new kernel, reboot (with fingers crossed) and it hangs at "calibrating delay loop...".
Most everything I've been able to find on the web people are referring to bad MB's, RAM, or other hardware problems. I'm not convinced this is the case considering I can boot my old kernel 2.2.12 and everything works fine.
Any suggestions? Is there some means to find log files of the 2.2.23 attempted boot? dmesg only shows the 2.2.12 boot up messages.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
Thanks in advance!
