Description Dennis Lundkvist 2001-03-17 12:17:46 EST
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.

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.
