Description James 2004-01-28 12:42:59 EST
Description of problem:
Kernel panic when starting Gnome (or any Gnome-based application, e.g.
gnome-terminal, gnome-help) using abovementioned kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Invocation of a user app.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot that kernel.
2. Log in via SSH. (This machine has next to no memory, so I use an
   X server on a remote box.) Set the DISPLAY variable, so session
   is NOT tunnelled.
3. Run gnome-terminal and wait.
Actual results:
Kernel panic. Mess on screen. System halt.

Expected results:
No kernel panic (but maybe a bit of thrashing).

Additional info:
Problem does not show up when using kernel.org's 2.4.24 kernel.
Managed to compile this OK under the panicky kernel, so disinclined
to think hardware's awry.
Machine is K6-233 w/ 64Mb RAM, ~200Mb swap, S3 ViRGE/DX (but don't use
X server on it), SB ViBRA-16 sound card (shouldn't get used), fealnx
based NIC.

There have been several errata kernels since 2115, please try those.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
