Eventhough I'm new to linux, I've taken enough classes and messed with things enough to know a little bit
Anyway, my problem is with Redhat 8.0. I verify the iso's and then burnt the cd, when I tried to install on my server, the install craps out with a message similar to this:
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000001 printing EIP:
*pde = 00000000
EIP: 0010:[<c0287300>] Not tainted
EIP is at (2.4.18-14 BOOT)
And so forth.....
Code: 0f b6 44 d1 01 39 f8 74 13 42 39 f2 7c f2 bb ff ff ff ff 89
<0>Kernel Panic: Attempted to kill the idle task!
In idle task - not syncing
Also the keyboard light CAPS lock and scroll lock are flashing when the kernel fails.
The server's config is as follows:
Dell Poweredge 5166-2
Dual 166 Mhz processors
256 MB ECC RAM
8GB Seagate IDE HD
Two 10/100 Network cards Linksys/3com
On board PCI SCSI BUS (NCR)
Can anybody help me out?
Thanks Everyone, in advance!!
Note RH 7.3 didn't work either, server is currently running rh 7.2 without problems.
