Description David Bentley 2006-06-18 11:54:41 UTC
Description of problem:
On two of my machines one with a K6/233 256 meg of ram and the other with a
K6III/450 384 meg of ram they both get as far as finishing loading initrd.img
and the next thing I see is Ready before the system reboots.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
boot.iso for i386 dated 17/6/06 direct from download.fedora.redhat.com

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from boot disk
Actual results:
boot from boot disk and wait (system reboots)
boot from boot disk type CR (system reboots)
boot from boot disk type linux text (system reboots)

Expected results:

The usual boot sequence as on two other machine one with athalon 1200
and 512 meg of ram the other twin xeon's with 1024 meg

Additional info:

both of the systems that actually boot suffer from a crash after you hit OKwhen
the full ftp or http path has been input (this has already been reported

You're using an i586.  We do not have i586 kernels for this test release (and
possibly for the final release).
