Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-09-13 22:31:01 EDT
Description of problem:

On x86_64 2.6.13-1.1552_FC5 does not even try seriously to start.  There is
an immediate oops, which scrolls of the screen and the whole machine is frozen.
Later I can try to catch that via a serial console if there is a serious need.

An i686 equivalent boots on my test machine without any incidents.

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

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-09-14 01:19:54 EDT
I can reproduce this.
It's hitting the BUG() in mm/slab.c:662, with a traceback of 

kmem_find_general_cachep <- kmalloc_node <- kmem_cache_create <- kmem_cache_init
<- start_kernel

I'm still trying to find the actual cause of this.

2.6.13-1.1555_FC5 boots for me without surprises
