Kernel panic without "pci=nosort text" at boot

  1. Hi:
    With almost every Linux distributions I've tried (Fedora 3 & 4, Suse
    9.3 and a Portuguese version of Linux "Caixa Magica") if I don't have the
    option "pci=nosort text" at boot I get a "Kernel Panic: not syncing,
    attempted to kill init" and a system freeze. With Suse 9.3, which I have
    installed on my system, this option is already included in the boot
    sequence, so there is no need to put it by hand. However, if I choose the
    safe mode, I get a system freeze if I don't write it at boot.
    Does anyone knows why this happens? Is it a kernel bug, or hardware
    My guess is that it has to do with the video card, which in my case is ATI
    Radeon X600 PCIE. Is this true?
