Description Tom Haynes 2002-12-26 19:26:22 UTC
Description of problem: running Compaq Proliant 5000 mdl 1x (1 cpu 200mhz Ppro, 128m ram, 2 eth using TLAN driver, embded fast-wide scsi2 controller,sd0 4.2gb,sd1 4.2gb,sd2 4.2gb,sd3 4.2gb,sd5 CDROM,fd0 1.44mb) Booted from floppy (bootnet.img from 8.0 cd) with command linux mem=exactmap mem=640K@0 mem=127M@1M loaded TLAN.O driver (from drvnet.img) for 2 ethernet adapters (compaq net/flex and nettelligent) network connection completed succesfully ALT-F4 log read... <4>TLAN: eth0: Link active <6>spurious APIC interrupt on CPU#0, should never happen. <6>spurious APIC interrupt on CPU#0, should never happen. boot continued fine When I could not mount the NFS image I tried to ping the computer I was installing linux on to make sure the link was good. for every ping sent to the computer a new line was added that said the same thing... <6>spurious APIC interrupt on CPU#0, should never happen. except for once when it said... <4>spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7 IRQ 7 is for the ethernet card I have active Have not completed install at this time (not related problem) to see if it hapen during runtime. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: <6>spurious APIC... With 58 of 100 consecutive pings <4>spurious 8259A... Only once (none during 100 pings) Steps to Reproduce: 1.load TLAN module 2.ping IP address from remote station Actual results: sent 100 pings 58 resulted in <6>spurious APIC... Expected results: no output or <4>spurious 8259A... Additional info:

could you try adding "apic" to your "mem=" line ?
Comment 2 Tom Haynes 2002-12-29 05:06:42 UTC
I did get 7.1 to install. The main bug seemed to be a problem with the CD. However, I did a new install of 8.0 and could not get X to work, either from the install or after configuration from the shell. my CL-GD5420/512 worked with 7.1 but would not work with 8.0. I used LORES and "RESOLUTION=..." commands. Xf86Config could not get X to work either. But, that is a different bug.

As of Red Hat 9 we dropped single processor APIC support as it causes problems (like the one here). This should have solved it.
