Description Hank Magnuski 2000-01-26 22:50:41 UTC
The "out-of-box" Redhat 6.1 kernels "586" and "686" (no SMP involved)
generate the following paging error, most frequently during a make
command using a lot of C++ compiles.

The system is an Intel PD440FX motherboard with PII 266 MHz and
64MB RAM with 128MB paging file. Was extremely stable under 2.1.126.
With the upgrade I can not complete a long make command.

This OOPS is from the 6.1 "586" kernel.

Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address d09d55a8

Comment 1 Hank Magnuski 2000-01-27 22:11:59 UTC
Same disk works fine on a SE440BX motherboard.

I may have bad hardware or there is a software failure
with Intel's PD440FX motherboard.
