The check for APIC already mapped was added recently but the early assignment to
maxlvt was not removed. This error is masking the real reason that the kernel is
failing to boot...

void clear_local_APIC(void)
====>   int maxlvt = lapic_get_maxlvt();
        u32 v;

        /* APIC hasn't been mapped yet */
        if (!apic_phys)

        maxlvt = lapic_get_maxlvt();

Comment 8 ben 2008-06-08 04:41:01 EDT
This has been closed I see but it don't help with installing from the DVD or am
I missing something between my ears?
Comment 9 Ted Sudtell 2008-06-08 11:11:57 EDT
My mistake.  I was talking about the yum update and put it on the wrong bug .  Either way the update 
works.  The DVD install on my part only got fixed when I took the USB drive offline.
