Subject: 2.6.25-rc4 OOMs itself dead on bootup
Date: Thu, 06 Mar 2008 11:26:24 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hash: SHA1

2.6.25-rc4 invokes the oom-killer repeatedly when attempting to boot,
eventually panicing with "Out of memory and no killable processes."
This happens since at least 2.6.25-rc3, but 2.6.24 boots just fine,

The system is a Dell Inspiron E1705 running Fedora 8 (x86_64).

My .config is at, and a syslog
of the system up until the point where it oom-killed syslog (just before
the panic) is at
