I have installed Fedora 8 on my PC, which works fine, however if a disc is present in my DVD-RW drive when booting, the system boots just before GDM loads.

If I boot with no disc in the drive all is ok, but if I then load a disc, the system freezes (in X) and reboots (in console runlevel 3).

Bizarre, really bizarre - it isn't often I get a report which is entirely
unique but you've managed it - well unless you are using the Nvidia
binary drivers for 3D on Nvidia cards ?

Can you tell me what SATA controller you have and what the rest of the
system is (lspci -vvxx would be good). It would be best if you opened a
bug in bugzilla.redhat.com and let me know its number. I can take it from

Other useful information would be the boot messages ("dmesg") when it
boots up without rebooting.
