Help! I just upgraded my Linux box to the AMD 120Mhz chip & new
motherboard (EFA 486 PCI w/UMC chipset) and now Linux will not
complete the bootup. It starts like it's going to run like a
real screamer (60.45 bogomips) but as soon as is gets to the
/etc/rc.d/rc.S and begins testing the filesystem, it then
blows up with:
"Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address c0000000"
followed by a bunch of other stuff as it finishes dying.
or somtimes it gives "Invalid operand:0000" and a bunch of other stuff that
looks like a dump of cpu registers & such.
It does this whether I boot from my hard drive or from floppies. When I try
to boot from floppies (including using the color144 root filesys disk)
sometimes it will boot all the way to let me log in as root, but usually
craps out with the same kind of error message after typing in a few chars
of the first command (like trying to mount my hard drive into /mnt or even
doing a "ps -x". Kernel version is 1.2.13 on Slackware 2.3.
