Description Glen A. Foster 2003-02-25 23:17:38 UTC
Description of problem: SSIA. If I boot up an Intel RAID controller that is automatically discovered and bound to the 'gdth' driver, all is well until I perform a graceful shutdown via /usr/sbin/shutdown. Then I get a panic. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): # rpm -q kernel kernel-2.4.9-e.10 How reproducible: 100% (always) Steps to Reproduce: 1. Add an Intel RAID controller to a system containing an everything install of RHAS2.1 + 2.4.9-e.10 kernel -- uses 'gdth' driver 2. Boot up, make a file system on a RAID partition. 3. Run "shutdown" Actual results: Attached. Additional info: Let me know what else you need to troubleshoot/diagnose this.

Created attachment 90367 [details] Serial console output (boot msgs, diagnostics, panic data)
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-26 09:39:10 UTC
this is actually fixed in the e.12 erratum kernel.
Comment 3 Glen A. Foster 2003-02-26 16:31:34 UTC
This is all well and good, thanks for the update. How does one go about getting an 2.4.9-e.12enterprise kernel? Must they compile it themselves, or has the enterprise kernel been obsoleted, or what? /me did an everything install of AS2.1 and ran up2date to get the newest packages -- I have the following kernel RPMs: kernel-2.4.9-e.12.i686.rpm kernel-debug-2.4.9-e.12.i686.rpm kernel-doc-2.4.9-e.12.i386.rpm kernel-headers-2.4.9-e.12.i386.rpm kernel-smp-2.4.9-e.12.i686.rpm kernel-source-2.4.9-e.12.i386.rpm ... but no enterprise kernel.
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-26 16:58:17 UTC
the "enterprise" kernel is only for 4Gb+ machines... up2date kernel-enterprise will install it anyway but if you don't have more than 4Gb of ram you'll loose 6% performance.
Comment 5 Glen A. Foster 2003-03-07 20:32:30 UTC
I've verified the -e.12 kernel resolves the panic-on-shutdown problem.
