kernel panic - not syncing: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!

I believe there is more information before this but it scrolls off of the screen
too fast to see and I cannot scroll back.  I haven't found this information in
any logs.

Expected results:

Normal boot-up

Additional info: This laptop has a Realtek RTL-8185 802.11a/b/g wireless controller.

Try the latest kernel from 
this helped me on i686 with the same wireless chip.
Comment 2 Chuck Ebbert 2008-03-19 16:00:16 EDT
