Re: Problem with Livecd and i586

I have created a specialised spin of fedora 11, both gnome and XFCE,

IO APIC resources could not be allocated
Kernel Panic - not syncinging: attempted to kill init

I have tried noapic and noacpi - no diiference

The laptop boots puppy fine

So any idea what the issue is here

Any help appreciated

I believe you need i686 or better to run f11. I suppose you could recompile everything for [345]86 processor, but I don't think it comes that way. And there may be some assumptions in scripts and commands that certain features are present.

Good to know puppy works, I have an old laptop.
