Description Thomas J. Baker 2007-09-28 18:35:04 UTC
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

Comment 4 Chuck Ebbert 2007-09-28 20:35:31 UTC
Fix is in CVS, will be in the next kernel.
