Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 196720
RHEL4 U4 i386 partner beta will not install on Dylan systems
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:25 EST
Description of problem:
When attempting to install the RHEL4 U4 partner beta (i386) on a Unisys Dylan
system, the uniprocessor installation kernel panics. We found that the system
will install when using the "noapic" parameter.
This is a regression from RHEL4 U3. There were no kernel parameters rquired
to install RHEL4 U3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Can be reproduced anytime install is attempted without the nopic parameter.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from the RHEL4 U4 i386 partner beta CD1 and attempt to install.
Kernel does not panic.
This problem appears to be similar to the problem reported in Bugzilla Bug
195002. The patch that corrected that problem will not corrct this one
because the dmidecode values are different for the Dylan systems. If you want
to make a similar patch for the Dylan systems we can provide the dmidecode
product names for the Dylan systems.
