Red Hat 4.2 Kernel Panic during install

Red Hat 4.2 Kernel Panic during install

Post by Brad Okamot » Sun, 17 Aug 1997 04:00:00

I just bought Red Hat Linux 4.2 and trying to get it install on a Cyrix
5x86 120Mhz system with a 1.2 hard drive with no other operating system.  I
have a 4x Sanyo  crd-254s SCSI  cd-rom drive attached to a Pro Audio
Spectrum sound card with a trantor scsi controller built on.  After I
select the Pro Audio Spectrum scsi controller during the setup it finds my
cd-rom drive fine, but I get the following message.

Kernel panic: scsi_free: Trying to free unused memory
In swapper task - not syncing

Any assistance you can give me on how I can get RH Linux installed would be
greatly appreciated.  I am new to Linux and very anxious to work with it.


1. Red Hat 7.1 - Installing Red Hat packages after Red Hat is already installed.

How can I install packages that I forgot to install with the Red Hat
7.1 installation?

Here's my problem:
Various pieces of Red Hat keep saying that I am missing a file and
that it needs to be installed with a certain package (namely most of
the Kontrol Panel).  But I have been unsuccessful at finding where
this is done.  I am still a newbie with Linux, but I would assume that
there should be an "Add/Remove Programs" equivalent with Linux.

Please help!
