Should be assigned to Kernel since this is a kernel panic and not a release
notes issue. Might be related to

Please ensure that bug reports are filed against the appropriate product

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-08-26 09:13:56 UTC
umm, that happens during the install ? Or post-install on first boot ?

block(8,3) is /dev/sda3, which doesn't make a lot of sense.
What device is your CD on ?  Are you passing any boot arguments ?

Can you boot with vga=791, and take another picture, so we get more context ?

Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-11-10 19:49:46 UTC
2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.

Thank you.

I'm going to remove documentation watch on this item.  If installation should
fail for an FC5 test release, please let us know.  You can do this by adding
relnotes@fedoraproject.org to the CC: field for the bug.

This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.

A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO_REPORTER state.
