Upgrading from linux-image-2.6.18-686 to linux-image-2.6.24-686 breaks on AMD Geode LX CPU
I recently upgraded from etch to lenny and in the process my kernel
was upgraded from linux-image-2.6.18-686 to linux-image-2.6.24-686.
This new kernel crashes immediately after being uncompressed on boot,
and I have been forced to use the "486" build of the kernel if I want
This AMD Geode LX processor has always executed 686 kernels in the
past. Have I previously just been lucky or is this a bug in 2.6.24?
This was the only problem I encountered during the etch to lenny
upgrade, so congratulations to everyone involved!
