Description of problem:
On my MSI-5184 board with a K6-2/500, at shutdown I receive a

"Code: Bad EIP value.

Kernel panic: Fatal exception"

This seems to be a bug for this specific board. Linux tries to 
shutdown the board, which is *NO* ATX board, it is still AT-based. So 
it cannot be shutdown. I have this bug in various distributions.

Please let me know what kind of information you need so it can be 
fixed. ;-)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. shutdown

Actual Results:  Code: Bad EIP value.

Kernel panic: Fatal exception

Expected Results:  A clean shutdown.

ehhhhh RHEL3 doesn't come with i586/K6 support... at all.
Are you sure you filed it against the right component ?
Comment 2 Florian Effenberger 2004-05-21 06:39:40 EDT
As a poor student, without any hope of a generous donation from Red 
Hat, I only can use "White Box Enterprise Linux" ;-)

I thought it was identical to the original Red Hat Enterprise Linux. 
Sorry for the confusion ;-)
Comment 3 Rik van Riel 2004-05-21 09:16:18 EDT
There are a few technical reasons why RHEL3 doesn't support i586 and
below.  Please contact the whitebox people instead and ask them to fix
the bug.
