Unable to boot Roswell
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of Problem:
Latest images (Roswell) still won't boot on my systems (IBM 570 laptop,
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from ISO "roswell-i386-disc1.iso"
Booting with 'nofb' yields:
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address c8801000
What happens if you boot with 'nobiospnp'?
I tried 'linux nobiospnp' and 'expert nobiospnp' - same results.
Is there any way I can test a different kernel than the one one the CD?
Perhaps an older one, etc, to help track down what might be off with this one.
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this defect before next release.
The kernel provided on Roswell/RC1 works on this laptop.
This bug can now be closed.
