Description of problem:
Dual 244 Opteron processors
HDAMA version 1.40 motherboard
180G IBM IDE drive on PRI IDE channel (master)
Cheap IDE CDROM on SEC IDE channel (master).
Starting installer in text or GUI mode I get a kernel crash right after anaconda
probes the mouse, stack backtrace ends up in pci_map_sg() after making its way
thru the IDE driver.
Tried: turning off DMA in BIOS for drive, different (older 10G) IDE drive
Workaround: linux mem=4g text
After system is installed the default kernel (2.4.20-9.2smp) works fine with all
8G up (so far).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Acquire 8G of RAM and HDAMA mobo
2. Try to install GinGin64 taking defaults
Actual Results: Crash as described above.
Expected Results: Installation runs to screen warning that this is a preview.
Mostly just reporting this to save the next person who trips on this some time
and a keyword hit in bugzilla.
