The bad pte message is not your problem.  This message is only cosmetic, and will occur on every boot--it happens when Linux is scanning the APICs and re-mapping the same virtual memory address to several different possible APIC addresses.

A patch was applied to later kernels (RHEL3 doesn't display these messages) that prevents this message from occurring.

Subject: bad pte


I have a 2650 with RH linux 2.1.  The system locked up completely on me 
so I had to shut it down and reboot it.  I was looking through my log 
files and I am seeing a line in my message log file that says bad pte 
c0004fb0.  I am seeing things that say that is bad memory.  Is that true?

Thanks!
