From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
I installed the latest rawhide rpms of the kernel. After a reboot, the
kernel panics during
the booting. I tried several times and also reinstalled the kernel rpm.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the rawhide 2.4.3- kernel rpm
2. reboot


Actual Results:  shift-page up didn't work so i don't have the complete
output probably. The following text was visible on the screen after the

Kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task! 
In idle task - not syncing

Expected Results:  a normal bootup :-)

Additional info:

Because i didn't save the previous rawhide kernel, i compiled a new one.
First a kernel without binfmt for coff and binfmt for x86, so only elf and
misc enabled. (misc as module). That kernel worked but i couldn't run
netscape. I compiled a new one, this time also with the other two binfmt as
modules. After reboot: i got the same panic. Again i compiled a new one
without those two binfmt's and the kernel works.

System: Miata alpha, 500au

Please let me know if you need additional information.

Comment 1 Dries Verachtert 2001-05-18 17:46:20 UTC
I downloaded the latest rpmpackages of rawhide yesterday and upgraded all 
packages. Kernel 2.4.3-5 doesn't panic anymore. This kernel boots without any 
problems. Can this bugreport be closed or is there any need to figure out why 
the previous rawhide kernel didn't work?

Kind regards,
