Kernel panic on install
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Description of problem:
Installer starts ok.. whatever mode is used ( text graphic or even linux mediacheck ) they all end up in a crash.
this is what i see when it crashes
Checking if this processor honours the WP bit even in supervisor mode
<1> Unable to handle Kernel paging request at virtual address c0000000
( tons stuff )
( more stuff )
<0> Kernel panic :attempted to kill the idle task
in idle task, not syncing
everything si frozen and the caps lock and scrool lock become lit
This is on a Cyrix 2 233 196 mb RAM the mobo is AOpen AP5TC
2 hd 8 GB
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put disk in
Same as described above
Kernel panic, failure to boot the kernel
If you need anything,just ask :)
I reassembled a cyrix box out of bits and gave the 8.0.93 disk a spin. It seems
but I need to try a newer image at some point
At this time im redownloading the disk one.
Also i have booted the disk in my other machine with a Duron processor
and it works just fine.The media check for disk 1 is not reporting errors.
Would it be of any help to try install the kernel from the disk that
isnt booting to try isolate the problem ?
You have my full cooperation and any help i can give to resolve this
1) this release im testing is 8.0.94
2) I switched cpu's in this machine with a new out of the box Cyrix II
To make a comparison or see if the older CPU was defective.
I retried,it is the same error exactly.
The new disk also passes the medium test on the duron ,boots on it,
Motherboard issue ?
PS:im just trying to give you as much info as i can.
From now on ill keep quiet :)
