Comment 1 John Ellson 2002-12-15 20:25:37 EST
(bug submitted itself prematurely, sorry)

messages like:
    handle-vm86-fault
    handle-vm86-fault
    proc-do-poolsize
    proc-do-poolsize
    ip-fra-reasm
    ip-fra-reasm

block repeated to fill page.

It looked like the first page of errors may have contained something else, but
it flies past to quickly to see.

Machine is a Sony Viao laptop that runs fine with RedHat 8.0 kernels.

I never did see 2.4.20-0.pp.10, but 2.4.20-2.20 in Phoebe still won't boot.
It spews continuous "page fault" or somesuch messages but they scroll past too
fast to read.

The messages now scroll continuouly, not in bursts.
