Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55144
7.2 crashes booting on Athlon
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:47 EDT
Description of Problem:
Fresh Install on Athlon-based system causes kernel panics on every boot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time, every boot.
Steps to Reproduce:
Azza KT3-AS MB
NVidai MX 200 32MB
This system is successfully running Slack8/Mdk81/Deb2.2r3/Rhat7.1. No
other install has every provoked a kernel panic. My guess is that the
install loaded an "Athlon Optimized" kernel and those just don't work. I
have been emailed by other Athlon users experiencing the same thing.
Yes it's the known problem with some athlon boards;
please add the "noathlon" option on the kernel commandline
("linux noathlon" in lilo, in grub type "e" go the the second entry, edit that
and add noathlon at the end)
