Description of problem:
Kernel panics when trying to install. Disc images match MD5SUM, but
it fails even when booting "linux mediacheck".
Some text output:
Unable to handle kernel paging request<1> at 000000008010ddbe RIP
[<000000008010ddbe>]PML4 1ecb9067 PGD 0

<0>kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task!
In idle task - not syncing
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to install CD (yarrow-test1-x86_64-disc1.iso)
2. Select any option
Hardware is Gigabyte GA-K8VT800M, AMD Athlon64 3000+, 512MB DDR400
I just finished some more testing and I got a couple of useful bits of
I tried to install many other x86_64 OSes, and all kernel paniced.
Red Hat ES 3.0 beta 3
Rocks 3.1.0 (based on a RHES 3.0 recompile)
SuSE Linux ES 8.0
Mandrake Linux 9.2rc1
I finally was able to get FC1 to work by disabling the "Enable USB
Keyboard" and "Enable USB Mouse" in the BIOS (version F4). I got the
kernel panic with either of these options turned on. This looks like
there may be a bug in the USB code in the install kernel.
this still a problem with fc2/fc3?
