Linux boot prob with Athlon 900
Posted on 2001-06-17
I've just upgraded my m/board and CPU from PII-266 to Athlon-900, and afterwards Linux will no longer boot. It crashes out right at the start, with a General Protection Fault when trying to disable the CPU serial no. (didn't know that Athlons have them?)
Tried re-installing the /boot and / partitions, and the RH installer boots a kernel ok to re-install, but then when rebooting off the HDD the same error again.
