Description David Wilson 2008-04-26 01:31:05 EDT
Description of problem:

In the FC9 Test release out as of 4-23-2008 I burned two copies of the disk and
tried the memtest86 (Ver 2.01?) program on two boxes.  Both boxes failed the
memtest and both boxes passwd with version 1.55.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fedora Core 9 Test

How reproducible:

Seems to be very reproducible.  I did not pull down another image of the disk,
however have not seen a problem with corruption before.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download FC9 Test
2. Run Memtest
3. Wait 30 seconds to a minute
Actual results:
It wasn't pretty

Expected results:
No complaints

Additional info:
Could someone else try this and see if it was just my luck?  This was on two
different machines, buth AMD Athlon boxes.

This was on the Beta release. 
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2008-04-26 20:47:27 EDT
Did you try the F9 Preview release (released this past week).  Beta might have
had a broken memtest86+ due to Bug #437701
Comment 3 David Wilson 2008-04-26 23:45:30 EDT
The F9 Preview release has the problem fixed.

Thanks guys!
