Hi,

I installed latest kernel ( 2.6.24.4 or 2.6.24.3 ) with grsec which either panics or hang on reboot before reaching boot prompt, just when /sbin/init runs. Experienced the same with grsec patched kernel 2.6.22.9 on several servers with the same hardware.

On server with AMD Operton, I was able to successfully compile 2.6.24.4 with grsec and boot into.


Can you please advise any hints to look at to get past this.

Thanks
