Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 311491
kernel panic - cannot find valid memory map
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:26:25 EST
My Dell XPS1210 laptop can't boot any F8 kernels >= 211.rc8.git2.fc8. It
complains about not finding a memory map. I've tried 211 from rawhide and 213
from koji. The 204 kernel released yesterday in rawhide works. There have been a
few build in between that and 211 which I haven't tried. I can if you need me to.

I should add the 211 kernel boots fine on my two other desktop xeon systems so
it's a conflict with my core2duo laptop.
We're pretty sure we know whats causing this issue. A fixed patch is going into
upstream today hopefully at some point, or will be added as a patch in a kernel
Fix is in CVS, will be in the next kernel.

This is confirmed fixed for me.
