Description Dennis Lundkvist 2001-03-17 17:17:46 UTC
Trying to install, but the kernel freezes on the honor WP bit in 
supervisor mode test during boot.

Probably related to bug 29032...
I'm running a 486DX2 however.

Reproducible: Always
Actual Results:  Total hang.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-03-17 17:56:43 UTC
This is a known bug. A fix for a SMP race accidentally broke 486 and Cyrix
CPU's. A fixed kernel is available in rawhide.
