I have been trying for several weeks to install linux on a shiny
new machine running on an AMD 5x86-133 processor, unfortunately,
the machine dies, often during boot, sometimes on exiting fdisk, and
if not then, then after rebooting when I try to run mke2fs... I have
been using a modified version of the Slackware distribution, with
a 2.0.0 kernel. I have even tried to change motherboards (someone
indicated to me that this might be the problem...), but to no avail.
Currently, the motherboard is a Soyo SY-4SAW2 with an SiS 85C496
chipset. Common errors have are:
Segmentation fault, unable to handle kernel paging request at
virtual addres (x), idle task may not sleep (about five times),
and several others. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...
Thanks in advance,
