I've recently tried to install both 5.1 Release and 4.8 Release on a Toshiba laptop and I get this error:
panic: contigmalloc1: size must not be 0 during boot up (see full boot text below). 4.8 will actually install fully before giving this error, but 5.1 won't even get that far. From doing some reading it seems to be an ACPI error but with 5.1 the option to "boot with ACPI disabled" gives the same result. Possibly it is an AGP error since that is the last line before the panic (see below). I'd appreciate any pointers, though buying a new laptop may be in order :) Please reply to my e-mail address as I am not on this list. Thanks, Ryan Carmichael (This text is from an attempt with ACPI enabled; with it disabled the output is slightly different but end result is the same) Timecounter "i8254" frequency 1193182 Hz Timecounter "TSC" frequency 851940500 Hz CPU: Intel Pentium III (851.94-MHz 686-class CPU) Origin = "GenuineIntel" Id = 0x686 Stepping = 6 Features=0x383f9ff<FPU,VME,DE,PSE,TSC,MSR,PAE,MCE,CX8,SEP,MTRR,PGE,MCA,CMOV, PAT,PSE36,MXX,FXSR,SSE> real memory = 125763584 (119 MB) avail memory = 110366720 (105 MB) Pentium Pro MTRR support enabled md0: Preloaded image </boot/mfsroot> 4423680 bytes at 0xc06877a4 npx0: <math processor> on motherboard npx0: INT 16 interface acpi0: <TOSHIB 750 > on motherboard pcibios: BIOS version 2.10 Using $PIR table, 6 entries at 0xc00f01d0 acpi0: power button is handled as a fixed feature programming model.
