Check that you're using the right kernel version (e.g., using 'i686' on an old
pentium, running athlon in non-athlon, etc.). Reporting the hardware you use
may also be useful. I'd check w/ google whether this has been reported in the
past, maybe also searching the red hat bugzilla for similar bugs.
In any case, Fedora Legacy is only doing security updates, so this isn't
something we're likely going to investigate.
This doesn't seem to be important enough to fix just on its own, so mark it DEFER.
Try the latest kernel.
See if that fixes the problem.
