Description of problem:
go to boot kernel-smp-2.6.16-1.2096_FC5 and i get a screen full of oops
when udev tries to start.
kernel-2.6.16-1.2096_FC5 has no problem
kernel-smp-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 has no problem
I take it I'm gonna have to attempt to get another digital camera picture of the
oops in action? God I hate trying to do that never get the focus right. I need
a tactile screen so I can do a charcoal or crayon rubbing instead of this
digital camera crap.
The system is an aging dual athlon 1800 mp system. I think I might have seen
this happen to this system when I was running the fc5 test releases/rawhide.
I'll have to dig through bugzilla for my closed reports to see if thats true.

This is one of several page faults errors I've have recieved and this time the
The system was running F@H for several hours.
FYI 2.6.16-1.2098_FC5smp from the people.redhat.com/~davej space boots with any
issue on this box. So whatever the problem was it appears to be specific to the
2098 kernel-smp build and was corrected in the upstream 18.104.22.168. Hopefully
22.214.171.124 will also be without issue. I'll ping this report, with digicam
screenshots if the soon to be released update kernel based on 126.96.36.199 also has
a problem. Otherwise I'll close this as the original reporter.
