Redhat Linux 7.3
When booting at early stage it displays following error

process kapmd
write_ldt [kernel] 0x43
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address e0000000
Printing eip
*pde = 00000000

Nothing helps - i've tryed 2.4.18-3, 3smp ,3bigmem, 18-4,18-4smp, kernels tryed to use others - all the time this error and i cannot boot.

Environment:
Pentium 4 1800Mhz,

Setup completes successfully.
I can easily boot up rescue mode from original CD

Please help.

Hi!

Have you tried the BOOT kernel, this is almsot as a safe-mode kernel.

If you can try RH 8, instead.

You have setupo a swap partition I hope ?

Have you managed since installing to boot at all?
Did you boot, and then re-compile the kernels mentioned above.  Is the drive a stock IDE drive or SCSI with the need for initrd images?
How far down the bootup process does this occur ie. what happens before this?
7.3 does use GRUB as far as I remember, is there a config line in grub.conf that requires an init file that perhpas is inaccessible?

Hope we can identify the problem by eliminating possiblities one by one.

Config:  P-IV, IDE (secondary slave)
i used mentioned kernels.
i did not tryed to recompile in rescue mode since i don't know the core of the problem. (what options to select)
all precompled kernels (mentioned) dumps the same error at early boot (the same adress)
i mean after grub starts to load initrd... (sometbthing) this error appears. At very early stage - even screen is just half filled with startup info

PS i just use Win2k on this machine - during last 2 month and met no problem so this is not memory problem i think (DDR RAM)
