Looks like it ran out of iommu space trying to map the buffers. Is the GART set
to a very small size on this box ?
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2003-05-27 17:17:08 EDT
GART is in the bios - but if it ran SuSE OK before then that doesn't sound like
the bug
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2003-06-09 22:34:11 EDT
Ok so using 
linux -mem=3G
at install solved the problem. The machine is dual CPU 8G.
Comment 6 Alan Cox 2003-06-10 11:22:34 EDT
That sounds like one of the device drivers you are using isn't properly handling
the 64bit addressing, probably the IDE layer somewhere from the trace but might
be IDE is just the unlukcy recipient of the mess. Can you attach an lspci -v ?
