Kernel Panic booting phoebe-3 bootdisk.img
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Description of problem:
I am seeing a kernel panic when booting bootdisk.img from the very last phoebe.
This box is a VIA Cyrix processor, which installed 7.3, 8.0, and previous
phoebes prefectly well.
The kernel panic occurs at the point where it checks for WP.
"Checking if this processor honours the WP bit even in supervisor mode...Unable
to handle kernel paging request at virtual address c0000000," after which the
usual stack trace follows.
Here are bits from /proc/cpuinfo for this box:
cpu family: 6
model name: VIA Ezra
Found the dupe. Simple query sucks. :)
