Description John Ellson 2002-12-16 01:31:19 UTC
Description of problem:

(This is a resubmit of bug 79710 which escaped on me before I had completed it.)

Boot hangs with about two screen of mesages that repeat every second or so.
The second (or last) screen contains messages (hand copied) like:
block repeated to fill page.

It looked like the first page of errors may have contained something else, but
it flies past to quickly to see.

Machine is a Sony Viao laptop that runs fine with RedHat 8.0 kernels.
