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.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the rawhide 2.4.3-184.108.40.206 kernel rpm
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 :-)
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.
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?
