Description of problem:
Equipment: Asus SK18N, 1.8G Opteron

Kernal dies *immediately* after hitting return in grub, display traces
and idle dies unable to swap.

I've been running 2.6.x on Fedora / x86_64 since December, using my
own kernel compilation. (a specific kernel build seems fine) I've
tried re-building my the kernels with your .spec, all of them crash.
I've tried 2.6.0, most of the patches etc to 2.6.2, all work for me,
none of your work.

I thought at first it might be because SATA support was modular, but
modifying your .spec and incorporating a few key modules as built-in
made no difference. Something you compile in option-wise simply
doesn't work on this setup.

Be aware that this motherboard was written up this month as THE board
to have to home Opteron users (!)

My machine is a mess after doing nasty things with it for two months
testing different Fedora setups... I need to reinstall, but I'm loath
to go back to the drawing board re; an install, the first one took me
a week ...

Any chance of a cut down kernel (I can send you a .config!) or if you
could publish the procedure for generating a bootable install CD, that
would be good... I've tried to do this and wasted many days.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot machine
2. Select stock Fedora 2.6.1 kernel as supplied in RPM form
3. Hit return

this was fixed in the kernel after the one that became the test1
kernel (one reason we didnt do parallel amd64/i386 release for test1).

There is another issue with the current rawhide kernel however
regarding ia32 emulation. That should be fixed in tonights build.
