57 Steps To Avoid Kernel Panic

Friday, September 17, 2004

I tried to update my Linux distribution this week by starting over on a fresh virtual PC. I tried SuSE 9.1 Personal only to have a kernel panic early in the installation. Then I tried Fedora Core 2 only to have another kernel panic. That’s when I began to suspect a more sinister problem and found this bug entry - complete with a 57 step work around.

Maybe I'll just wait three months and try again.
