kernel 2.4.20-20.7smp panic on boot
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:03:12 EST
Description of problem:
Kernel in the 2.4.19 and 2.4.20 series panic and oops on boot. The system is a
Athlon with a 3ware 6400 series card in it. I think the oops is related to
3ware driver or something related since it always panics in the same place on
(around mounting/checking filesystems). The oops trace is given below.
the same problem does not occur with 2.4.18 kernels on the same system or with
(18,19, 20 series) kernel on an P-III system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime on boot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 2.4.19 or 2.4.20 series kernel. Specifically 2.4.20-20.7smp.
2. Reboot system.
3. Observe panic.
Panic and Oops.

oops and panic output
Try the latest errata kernel (2.4.20-27.7), which had a fix for RHL7
when using lots of stack space. Other than this, RHL7 & 8 are now
EOL, so there won't be any further updates.
