Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-10-19 11:29:53 EDT
please confirm that you are not adding mem=nopentium anywhere
Comment 2 Howard Christeller 2002-10-19 11:38:29 EDT
I am adding 'mem=nopentium', which used to work.  Is this a problem?
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-10-19 11:40:36 EDT
It appears that the real fix for the infamous "athlon issue" broke mem=nopentium
in some cases
Comment 4 Howard Christeller 2002-10-19 11:52:15 EDT
Removing 'mem=nopentium' has fixed the problem.  Everything's working fine now.
 Thanks for your help.
Comment 5 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:40:05 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
