Angry Problems with amd64 version 9.2 RC1

I am trying to install the amd64 version, RC1, of 9.2. I have a Gigabyte K8VNXP motherboard with a AMD 64 3200+ CPU. Version 9.1 of Mandrake works just fine, but I am having trouble getting the installer to run on the AMD 64 version. I copied down the beginning and end of the error messages, and it seems the middle portion was just a listing of the register contents. Anyway, here is what I copied down:

unable to handle kernel paging request <1> at 000000008010dbec
RIP: [<000000008010dbec>] PML4 1f5e0067 PGD 0
iiosL 0010
Pid: 0,comm: swapper not tainted
RIP: 0010: [<000000008010dbec>]
<0> Kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task!
IN idle task - not syncing
Spurious 8257A interrupt: IRQ 7

-----(end of error messages....machine halts)------

I hope this is an appropriate site to report this. I will also try to report it on the Mandrake Bugzilla site. Hope someone can figure this out.....

correction to above post!

The line that reads "iiosL 0010" should read "oops: 0010"

actanner- having the same problem but only with MSI Neo board. I've been searching for an answer with no success- but i do remember reading that shared IRQ's could cause problems with this kernel.

I was having the same problem with my board -Asus K8V Deluxe- and i couldn't figure out what the hell was going on.

Xp, Mandrake 9.0 and RH9 all installed fine AFTER changing the DDR voltage to 2.6v in the Bios.

But i still couldn't get any of the 64-bit Linux distro's (Mandrake 9.2, Suse 8.2-64) to install. Then I had to goto the Asus download page for my board and grab the latest Beta Flash for my bios. After i installed that ....Success!!!! (not that i'm tyring to rub it in...but man, it took me like 3 days to accomplish that).

All that i'm saying, is that you need to goto your mobo website and try and find the latest bios flash...even a beta if they have it. I believe and have read that the problem we have/had has to do with the memory. Just changing the votage to 2.6v in the bios might do it, but it might not. I have 1 gig of 3200 (2x512 double sided) and changing the the voltage to 2.6 and installing the beta bios flash worked for me.

I know it's not much help, but try to mess with the memory settings as this is most likely the root of problem.
