Description of problem:
The installer hangs on a 430 HX board with a single AMD K6/2 300mhz processor
during boot. Characteristics of the stall are as follows:
Numlock/capslock doesn't work
The time between boot and crash is usually the same, i.e. the faster you work
the further you get through the install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: The computer booted, I chose the text-only install (have also
tried graphical install) I got to the screen where you choose the language and
then the computer froze.
Expected Results: I *should* have completed the install ;)
This might be related to some sort of SMP bug I heard about.
Ermm, K6/2s in an SMP motherboard definitely isn't anything approaching a
supported hardware configuration by anyone. But does it do better if you boot
with 'linux apic'?
