Hi All....
Just installed 4.2.1 on a compaq dl580 with no problems on the install...on the

booting the kernel.
audit (1112361796.370:0):
initialized

at that point it stalls with a blinking cursor and stays there
indefinately...does anyone have any ideas on a fix...some background on the
compaq...it has 4, 2mb 700 xeon processors and 2 gbs of memory...everything in
the box is 'stock' compaq.....TIA John

You might try appending "noapic" to the appropriate kernel line in /etc/grub.conf (or do it at boot time.)


Also, check the BIOS for MP 1.1/1.4
Apparently, some older Xeons need to be run w/ it set to 1.1, YMMV.
