Description of problem:
From time to time I got kernel panic on my machine. It is difficult to qualify what is the reason. I do not load any modules, do not start any particular program. The machine is used as a desktop workstation, I'm using KDE 3.1.4. Some times the machine is being left overnight, when I'm back next morning it appeares it had crashed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

output from command "lsof -i "

sample "ps -fe" output
If You have any suggestions, what should I do to track down problem, I will be
glad to hear it. I am out of ideas.
Same problem here.
With previous RH9 SMP kernels we got a panic every two days aprox. With
2.4.20-20.9smp we got a panic per one or two weeks, but today we had two panics
in four hours, unfortunately I've logged only one of them.
I think this bug is related to 107575.
I'm attaching the contents of /var/log/messges, the output of lsmod, ps -ef and
lsof -i. The relevant hardware: Intel SHG2 motheboard (HyperThreading enabled) 2
XEON 2.4Ghz CPUs, 1GB RAM, 4 SEAGATE ST336607LC disks. And four nics E100, E100,
tg3 and 3c59x.

Looks like either two seperate bugs, or possible hardware problem.
Have you tried memtest86 on this machine ?
Yes I've been running MEMTEST86 for six hours with no errors. However, to be
sure we'll replace the RAM and reboot with HyperThreading disable on the BIOS
and UP kernel.
So if the panic is caused by a faulty hardware it should be reproduced in one or
No, I haven't tried memtest86, I will do it and let you know.
Hello, I have run memtest86 for a 4 days, and it did not detect any
errors. Any suggestions?
Try running the debug kernel for a while, see if that hits any of the
OK, how can I ran kernel in debug mode?
Since I've switched to Fedora Core this error is not occuring any
