Kernel oops

This oops does not contain the complete stack trace and was written down off
the screen and rentered by hand so there may be transcription errors...

looks like your bioses oopsed ;(

Comment 4 Sitsofe Wheeler 2003-06-20 09:31:31 UTC
That sounds quite severe... Can this BIOS be put on a blacklist and worked
around or is the only solution to hope that there was an updated BIOS with this
problem fixed?

Comment 5 Alan Cox 2003-06-22 17:30:42 UTC
Can you run dmidecode on the box and attach its output, thats the stuff needed
to blacklist the bios.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
