Description of problem:
On a Dell Latitude 640 w/ Radeon 7500 (512M RAM) the kernel (boot and i686)
panics while accessing high memory.
During Install, the Kernel Panic happens immediatly after "running /sbin/loader".
After install, irreproducible errors happen after boot with similar messages.
Current workaround is to use a mem=480M paramenter at install and boot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Linux
2. wait for panic :)
Actual Results: "invalid kernel-mode pagefault 0! "
Expected Results: no kernel panic?
Created attachment 93415 [details]
notice the problem doesn't occur when the system is started with mem=480M
just forgot: I did check for fauly memory with memtest86. No problems found.
we've had a problem with this for a long time
somehow it doesn't happen with the installed kernel usually, is that the case
for you ?
Florian, does this still happen?
Hello, Florian. Is there still a problem with a more recent
RHEL 3 kernel (such as U1 -- 2.4.21-9.EL)? Thanks. -ernie

Sorry. Somehow I didn't recieve the comments prior to the 'bug closed' message.
The problem disappeared w/ more recent kernels.
