Bug#316591: kernel-image-2.6.11-1-686: Extra ide probes hang some systems
The Toshiba Satellite 2410 boots fine with 2.6.8-2-686 but hangs when
booting with 2.6.11-1-686 just after the ide0 and ide1 drives are
The problems seems to be that the 2.6.11 kernel probes for ide4.
Giving the kernel parameter ide4=noprobe leads to a normal boot-up.
This can be probably be assigned to buggy hardware rather than
software but should be noted in "some documentation somewhere".
Thanks and regards,
