Description jurre 2000-10-21 22:17:33 EDT
When I install Red Hat Linux 6.2 on my PC (CPU:AMD Duron 700Mhz MBoard : 
BIOSTAR Mem:64Mb Hd:Maxtor 20Gb) All goes well until the generic kernel 
boots. I receive a kernel panic after the CPUID-call. How can I fix this?

This bug has been fixed in the 2.2.16 kernels and later.  It is the kernel 
trying to disable the PIII serial number -- on the new Thunderbird-core Athlons 
and Durons.  You can get booted with:

linux x86_serial_nr=1

at the LILO boot: prompt;  from there, you can either upgrade to a 2.2.16 or 
higher kernel, recompile with the serial number disabler turned off, or simply 
append that line into your /etc/lilo.conf file.

Doug --

you can probably downgrade this one or close it, since the fix is already in 
place in the newer kernels.  This is support's fault -- we've known about this 
for some time.
