Description Blue Lang 2000-04-19 09:11:12 EDT

When booting RH 6.2 from the CDROM, it gets to the checking 387/387
coupling and then loops with error message 387 failed: trying to reset.

Is there a way around this.

The system is VA6 Motherboard from ABIT with PIII 600 (Coppermine) 128
Megs of RAM and 13 GB HD with Matrox GE400 32 meg vid card.

Any ideas?  A mandrake 5.2 CD will boot and prepare to install without

I installed Slackware 7 with the no387 option.  It worked, but I had to pass
this option on a startups via lilo.  However I did have two subsequent

Both KDE and Lokis trial version of Railroad Tycoon.

I downloaded the latest kernel-2.3.99-pre5.  I compiled with the new PIII CPU
type, and I was able to boot the new kernel without the no387 option.
Apparently something changed for my hardware between 2.2.14 and 2.3.99-pre5.

Now KDE runs correctly and so does Loki's RRTycoon.

I had thought that this was hardware, but it looks like a problem with the 2.2
kernel series.  If I could figure out how to boot my system with a 2.3.99 kernel
and do the RH 6.1 install, I am sure it would work.  I guess I will use
slackware for a while.

 Both KDE and Lokis trial version of Railroad Tycoon.

Should say:

 Both KDE and Lokis trial version of Railroad Tycoon fail with Unable to handle
kernel paging request.
