Hello everybody

I am trying to boot 2 CPU hp zx6000 machine (ia64, itanium2) from STOCK
kernel version 2.4.18. I have followed following steps.

1. I have downloaded the kernel from . Also I have applied
ia64 patch (from
226.bz2) on it  .

2. Now I have build the kernel (using make compressed) for ia64 processor
type generic.

3. I have copied vmlinuz.gz (using mcopy) to vfat mounted partition
(/boot/efi/efi/redhat) and made appropriate entries in elilo.conf. 

4. Now I have rebooted the system and tried to load the image using EFI

5. The kernel is not able to boot it stops executing after displaying
message "kernel bug at bootmem.c line:113!".

I have following doubts: -

1. Is it possible to build and run _stock_ kernel (not redhat patched
kernel) on hp zx6000 machine ? Do I need additional patches the stock kernel
2.4.18 + ia64 patch ?


Thanks in advance..
