Really annoying 'cos this bug was fixed in the 2.4 pre-release kernels.
Fixed in the current rawhide kernel.
Oops! New kernel tried - it now gives a kernel panic with a kernel BUG error.
if it is a BUG error, the most important information for us is the
filename and linenumber that are printed directly there. Is it possible
to write those down and post them here? Thanks!
OK - using the rawhide installer the installation kernel now gives
kernel BUG at bootmem.c:220
Still on i486sx system
Ok this is very interesting. Ben?
How much RAM does this system have?
Currently 8Mb RAM & 1Gb disk.
Installer is running in text mode.
RH6.2 installed cleanly previously.
Fixed in rawhide! Thanks.
