Description Daniel Senie 1999-09-14 00:18:37 UTC
Installation of RedHat 6.0 from a disc with the latest
kernel added in (2.2.5-22). Installation on an Intel L440GX
motherboard (one or two CPUs supported), results in failure
to boot after installation completes.

The installed 2.2.5-22smp kernel which gets installed gives
a CRC error when LILO tries to uncompress it. Explicitly
booting the linux-up kernel worked just fine.

This would appear to make this Intel-certified-to-run-RH6
motherboard somewhat less useful than one would hope.

Not able to replicate in the test lab.  Possibly problem with file itself.
Please reopen if you are still having problems.

Comment 2 Daniel Senie 2000-02-08 14:11:59 UTC
I haven't had this problem with RedHat 6.1, though it was consistent with 6.0.
I don't have the spare hardware (or time) right now to go back and retest on
6.0, so I'd leave this one closed.
