Hi,
I got this error after booting my slackware 12 for several minutes. Very confused.

I tried to reinstall it times and times on different partition but have no success.

Code:
Check your RAM is seated properly and maybe check it with a utility CD.

The AMD website has a utility that will "decode" the values printed by the panic message. That might help to diagnose.

Cheers.

I dont know how to check it, I'm running Windows and Ubuntu, they are working and I think there shouldn't be a RAM error.

@MQMan: Thanks, I'll try it later.

New kernels have tickless feature enabled by default and it may have problems with specific hardware combinations.Try to boot with "nohz=off" kernel option. Just add it after image name at lilo prompt. If it would work, store this option in /etc/lilo.conf in append parametr permanently. Don't forget to rerun lilo.
Another option would be to try other kernel builds (generic vs generic-huge , smp vs nosmp).

I installed Ubuntu 7.10 lately and used GRUB as boot loader, see my boot options for my Slackware image.

Code:
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 ro vga = 733
savedefault
boot
I edited the second line to:

Code:
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 ro vga = 733 nohz = off
savedefault
boot
But the problem remains, systen hangs after 3 minutes.

Hi bro,
Options 'generic-huge' worked ! Thanks. Btw, what does this option mean ? Does it effect to something ?
