Description of problem:
From the FC1 release notes, I think this platform should be
supported. If this is not correct, please advise.
AMD K62 - 300 Mhz
196 MB RAM
During boot from CD, using several mix of boot options:
mem=196M nofb text
Kernel loads, then attempts to load initrd
At or about the end of the loading of the initrd, the screen goes
blank and the machine rebots back through the BIOS and back to boot
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora Core2 test1
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from CD
Actual Results: At or about the end of the loading of the initrd,
the screen goes blank and the machine rebots back through the BIOS and
back to boot from CD.
Expected Results: begin installation
please don't pass mem=xxx unless you really really have to. It tells
the kernel to ignore bios blackholes etc etc...
Understood RE: do not use mem=.
I attempted this only after previous failures.
