Hey I seem to be having the exact same problem that you're facing.
I haven't tried configuring my CPU to 75mhz yet though, I'll
try it and see what happens. I have a Pentium-90 on a
Intel Triton motherboard, 32mb RAM.
At first I thought the segmentation faults might be due to the
BusLogic Controller that I am using, but now I'm beginning to
suspect the motherboard itself.
: A couple of additional comments --
: first, the CPU is a 100 mhz Pentium and the MB is rated according
: to the "Advanced ZP expandable desktop baseboard preliminary
: documentation dated version 0.4 in Feb 95" and will handle 75 &
: 90 mhz parts. The MB has a 100 mhz CPU and if the switches are set
: for a 75 mhz part, the machine boots in the 75 mhz mode, likewise 90
: and likewise 100 mhz. In the 75mhz mode, everything runs just dandy
: (DOS, Windows 3.11 and Linux). In the 90 and 100 mhz modes, both
: Windows and Linux develop errors - general protection errors.
: The memory passes the 7 hours of norton's comprehensive memory test
: (32 megs of 70NS simms) in both the 90 and 100 mhz modes.
: The 100mhz CPU was working fine in another motherboard (plus, how
: often to CPU's fail?)
: The drive is a 1275 meg connor CFS model - and hda1 is a 450 meg DOS
: 6.22 partition, /dev/hda2 is a 40 meg swap and /dev/hda3 is a 700 meg
: Linux partition. The drive is connected to the onboard EIDE controller.
: The only cards on the bus are a ATI Mach64 with 2 megs of VRAM in a
: PCI slot and a Creative Labs SB16 in a ISA slot. Both board were moved
: to different slots, and the Creative Labs SB16 board was even removed.
: Any ideas?
