I did try apic=no as a boot option.... is it really "noapic" instead?

It would appear that on Jul 18, Rob Brown-Bayliss did say:


My next plan of attack is to swap my ethernet cards out for two brand new ones, run a memory test with a boot CD, remove all USB in favor of PS/2, and if nothing else works, switch motherboards. If anyone has been having similar problems (especially someone with a similar hardware config as mine) please let me know.

FC2, dual opteron, MSI k8t master-FAR motherboard, USB mouse/kybd with KVM switch.

Hmmm... Dual Opteron... Are you running a 64 bit kernel? <insert version> Are you running a 32 bit kernel? <insert version> Are you running a SMP kernel? <insert version> Are you running a non FC2 distribution driver? <insert version>

For the sake of diagnosing the problem and perhaps stability you might
setup to run single processor.  Disable the second processor
and run a stock single processor version of the kernel.

Since you are running KVM you might also take the KVM out of the loop
by adding a dedicated keyboard and mouse.  With X over ssh on a local
network I hardly use my KVM except to boot.

The lack of symptoms smells like a multi processor lock
problem to me.  These can be painful to diagnose.

Did you also try the "noapic" boot option?  That fixes a heck of a lot
of SMP issues for Athlon, Athlon64 and Opterons.
