Description taro 2001-06-21 19:12:39 UTC
Description of Problem:
the problem  is that when i try to install linux it begins to format but 
then locks up. and it gives me some kind of oops code.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select all the defaults on the hardware selecting screens
2. select workstation install
3. Try to get the files to write to the hard drive

Actual Results:
the results are nothing it just locks up at the formating screen.

Expected Results:
linux to be able to install on my pc

Additional Information:
i have had problems installing v6.2 on my pc because of it's AMD chip. It 
is also a epox board if that has anything to do with it.

Some more information about the Oops message is essential.  Also, try pressing
<Ctrl><Alt><F4> and see if there are any error messages there.  The Oops error
messages usually means that the kernel is having problems somewhere.

the oops code that uis given

Comment 3 taro 2001-06-21 22:42:06 UTC
The Oops code is 0000 thats all the information (See attachemnt) displayed. I 
tried the alt f3 and alt f4 with the support rep and in every case the only 
thing displayed was information in the attachement.

Changing component to the kernel.

Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2001-06-22 00:15:44 UTC
"epox board", iirc that has a VIA chipset 
could you try "ide=nodma" on the syslinux/lilo prompt to see if
disabling IDE works around the problem

Comment 6 taro 2001-06-22 01:16:16 UTC
the linux support rep had me try ide=nodma with no change in the result.

Comment 7 Alan Cox 2003-06-06 13:56:53 UTC
Closing: old bug that appears to be the old via chipset hardware problem newer
Linux works around
