Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7092
Installer crashes with Evergreen AcceleraPCI Celeron CPU
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:39:44 EST
The Evergreen 433MHz AcceleraPCI CPU upgrade uses an Intel Celeron CPU in
an easily installed PCI board to upgrade older PCI bus machines to i686
functionality. The originally shipped as well as revised install disk
kernels hang on testing the 'hlt' (halt) instruction similar to the
behavior previously reported with the AMD K6 CPU.
The lilo prompt instruction 'no halt' is not accepted by the install disk
kernel. A kernel recompile with the halt instruction disabled seems to be
in order to avoid this problem.
*** Bug 7093 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Instead of 'no halt', did you try passing 'no-hlt'?
Reopen this bug if the no-hlt instruction does not work.
