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:
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.
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.
