Description of problem:
Greetings, I work for a dedicated server vendor. We have seen very large issues with the current Fedora Core 3 kernel version 2.6.12-1.1372. Any box in our network that gets updated to this version and then is rebooted gets kernel panic upon reboot. If we roll back to 667 it works perfectly.

We use the 3 following motherboards.


Some of the machines have hyperthreading CPUs (SMP) some of them don't, some of them use SATA.. some of them don't. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 2.6.12-1.1372
2. Reboot

Actual Results:  Kernel Panic

Expected Results:  Normal reboot

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-08-06 00:17:49 EDT
is the panic 'failed to mount root filesystem' ?
If so, make sure you update mkinitrd to the latest errata first.

I'll be pushing out another kernel update soon which makes this a prerequisite.
