You are definitalty not alone on this. See
http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=2912. Maybe add a note there that
you have the same issue and report your system config. It looks likes
it only happens on older PII and PIII machines.

Tim

I have added a note about the problem on ProLiant3000 machine and dmesg output from
working kernel.

> it only happens on older PII and PIII machines.
And then only some of them - home home PC with PIII runs fine
with the new kernel.
I will upgrade 2 more machines with PII or PIII and see what will happen.

Thank you,

Wojtek

I don't have the necessary knowledge to evaluate kernel related issues,
but it seems to me that there's some kind of confusion involved here.
People are reporting problems with Intel Pentium II and III machines yet
PowerNow is a speed throttling </wiki/CPU_throttling> and power saving
technology used in AMD processors.

Should powernowk8 be called when Intel processors are present?

In theory you are correct. The problems seems to be that upstream has
decided to make that module part of the kernel itself and not as a
seperate module. This means that it is always loaded and that is
probably the reason why ther are issues on none-AMD hardware.

Tim

Added to the bug also, my guests kernel panics in Qemu (P/PII/PIII).

I get kernel panic at powernowk8_init+0x05e/0x1c3.



The previous kernel [ kernel-2.6.18-53.1.21.el5.i686 ] seems to work fine.



I am wondering if anyone has met this on PIII CPU ?

On the other hand, I run CentOS upgraded to 5.2 on a home PC with PIII (single CPU,

Is it normal, that powernowk8_init gets called on PIII CPU?

Is this the same issue I am having on my Celeron 2.6 GHz box, where the new Kernel dies, after "starting udev" is shown on the CRT?
Warm reboot, after "yum update" yesterday worked fine, but, after powering down the box and powering up, I cannot boot into the new Kernel. New Kernel is booting perfectly, on a P4** 1.6 GHz box.

OK, just for the record, I have upgraded 3 more machines to CentOS5.2
- a P4 Compaq D51S - new kernel runs OK
- a PII Compaq Deskpro EN - new kernel runs OK
- another 2*PIII Compaq ProLiant 3000 server - kernel crashes (somewhat expected, as the machine
is almost identical to that I initially reported)

Wojtek

We have created a new test kernel that has an upstream patch to fix this
issue, please test this and see if it fixes your issues:

Interesting - I have an Athlon 64 x2 4200+ that had no problems
booting the 5.2 kernel after an update, nor downloading and installing
the 92.1.6 source, nor rebuilding it with NTFS support added, nor
booting there, either.

I'll check when I get home to see what happened, but it all looks kosher.

Of course, I'm quite a bit behind in my emails, having been on the
vacation from hell last week, so I could be responding to a fixed
issue....

Ciao.

Yes,

the problem machine (Compaq ProLiant 3000) boots fine with this test kernel.
