Kernel 1063 works fine

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora    

Additional info:
Comment 1 MASAO TAKAHASHI 2005-01-07 18:52:26 EST
I met just the same symptom.

   kernel: 2.6.10-1.1069_FC4, 2.6.10-1.1070_FC4
   CPU : Pentium4 2.66GHz
   CHIPSET : intel 82865G
   MEMORY : 512MB
   HDD : ATA 40GB

   Just same as this symptom. A Oops is occured on boot time.
   But, kernel-2.6.10-1.1053_FC4 and kernel-2.6.10-bk8 are OK.
Comment 2 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-01-08 13:04:46 EST
Cannot reproduce with kernel 1074.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-01-08 13:49:08 EST
leave this open until I figure out *why* this happens.

It was fixed by dropping the addition of GFP_ZERO. This patch is
likely to spawn a whole bunch of users using it to obtain zeroed
memory, so long-term this isn't a solution.  Upstream are looking at
this issue as well as its not fedora-specific.
Comment 4 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-01-08 14:15:35 EST
By the way while kernel 1074 does boot, it doesn't work well at all.
Evolution starts the first time with it, and then locks up 
every time after. Furthermore the system froze within 10 mins of
using it. Should I investigate further and file more bugzillas?
Kernel 1063 works fine for me.

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-01-08 14:21:23 EST
no, I know whats causing that too. That's an unrelated issue.
(incompatability between CONFIG_PAGEALLOC and the periodic-slab-checker)
Comment 6 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-01-11 13:28:16 EST
Kernel 1075 with the slab-checker fix did not
correct the Evolution problem.

However kernel 1076 boots, and fixes evolution too.

Comment 7 Dave Jones 2005-01-11 16:11:13 EST
fixed upstream now, and in the rebased update kernels in rawhide.
