since I have udpated my two openSUSE 11.2 machines to 2.6.34-45 and now to -46 both with
-pae and -desktop from the repository Kernel:HEAD I get the following kernel panic:
"Kernel Panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill the idle task".
Booting with different parameters like noapic or acpi=off didn't help. Also the
failsafe option from GRUB didn't work.
Find attached an image of the trace.
