Description of Problem: 
On a dual Pentium III 700 (Asus P2B-D mainboard), 2.4.18-0.5smp crashes on startup; the 
part of the dump readable without a serial console or turning on framebuffer mode [this 
happens before shift-PgUp starts working] is:

Windows emulation is good for end users, but emulating even *this* behavior of Windows is 
taking it a step too far ;)

What is the last 2.4.18 that did boot ?
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-20 10:39:41 EST
2.4.18-0.4smp works like a charm. 
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-03-20 10:53:31 EST
Pete: this looks like it can be "more unnamed majors" related..
Comment 4 Pete Zaitcev 2002-03-20 11:12:28 EST
Hold on a sec, I'll check it out
Comment 5 Pete Zaitcev 2002-03-20 14:40:05 EST
Take 2.4.18-0.6. Sorry for the breakage and thanks for testing.
