[Bug 1219599] Re: [ASRock X79 Extreme6] Booting fails with wireless n PCIe adapter (ASUS PCE-N10)


I tried this with Ubuntu 10.04 desktop i386, Fedora 19 Desktop AMD64,
Windows Vista 32 bit, and Windows Vista 64 bit.   ALL FAILED to boot
when the wireless card was inserted.  Windows Vista 64 bit also gave me
a stop screen telling me there is an unresolvable hardware issue.

I'm pretty sure this indicates that this is not an error with Ubuntu.
Christopher, I'll let you close this.  Of course, if there is anything
else you want me to do, let me know.  Thanks for your help in debugging
this issue.

  [ASRock X79 Extreme6] Booting fails with wireless n PCIe adapter (ASUS

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When booting off the live CD for ubuntu-12.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso,
  ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso, ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso and a
  desktop installation of Ubuntu 12.04.3 AMD64, the computer failed to
  start when initializing the cfg80211 module.  I know the wireless card
  is related to the failure because removing the card causes the machine
  to boot.  Also, when booting with the ignore_loglevel option, booting
  frequently fails near messages about the cfg80211 module.  I attached
  a screen shot of where the system halted when loading ubuntu-13.04
  -desktop-amd64.iso with the ingore_loglevel option enabled. I know
  this wireless card normally works on Precise because I used it on the
  same install with different hardware. The apport-collect is for my
  current Precise install obviously without the wireless adapter.
