    Mini PET - My AMD based computer keeps locking up.

    Also known as the mem=nopentium bugfix.

    So your AMD system keeps locking up, why not try to fix it:

    Lilo users:

    set "mem=nopentium" like this:

    vim /etc/lilo.conf (use any editor you like - I like vim)

    Code:
    image=/boot/vmlinuz
            label=linux
            root=/dev/hda1
            initrd=/boot/initrd.img
            read-only
            append="mem=nopentium"
    if you already have something in the append line, just separate with a space.

    Grub users:

    set "mem=nopentium" like this:

    vim /boot/grub/menu.lst (use any editor you like - I like vim)

    Code:
    title=Linux
    kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 mem=nopentium
    Now reboot and enjoy crashfree computing once again.
