Just installed RH7 and logged in as root. Gnome tries to start the panel 
at the bottem but panel flashes quickly and disappears. When I 
issue "panel &" from a typescript it appears and disappears continously. 
Looking at ps aux it seems to be looping starting and ending with new 
PIDs. When I look in the /var/messages log it shows the following: 
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual addr. 00005e98 . (Other 
messages which seem unrelated) 
Process Panel 
Call Trace: Bad EIP value
Code: <1> Unable to handle kernel paging request 

My hardware is as follows: CTX Notebook 800 series 300 MHz 64 RAM 4G Hard 
Drive NeoMagic Video Card (Seems to be configured correctly) Hard Drive 
partitioned as follows (I let installer choose): 
/root 19M 
/SWAP 66M 
/ 3016M

I see the same problem, same machine.

This is probably the APM problem.
