"Unable to handle kernel paging request" on ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:40 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to install FC6 Test 2 I get the following error message shortly
after booting from DVD: "Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't
work! Try using the 'noapic' kernel parameter"
So I used the kernel option "noapic" for install and get a bit further. Now I
get the kernel error message "Unable to handle kernel paging request".
I included logs of both install tries and also the output of "lspci -v" from a
running FC5 installation. (FC5 gives an error message similar to the first one
when omitting the "noapic" option. With this option it works fine.)
My mainboard is a ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe. See
If you need further information, please tell me.

I tried the current devel snapshot today and the problem is gone. Closing this bug.
