Description of problem:
My FC1 system crashed overnight, while I was home in bed and there
should have been no active users.  The logs seem to indicate a kernel
issue.  The relevant lines in the log are attached.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Boot the machine
2. Wait

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.4.22-1.2188.nptl #1 Wed Apr 21 20:35:41 EDT 2004 i686 athlon

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the machine
2. Leave it running overnight

Actual Results:  Machine was hung - could ping it but sshd did not

Expected Results:  Machine should have stayed up and been ready to
work in the morning.

Additional info:

Additional Information:
Just upgraded to kernel  2.4.22-1.2188.nptl #1 Wed Apr 21 20:35:41 EDT
2004 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux before the first crash.   Also swapped
NVIDIA TNT2 card for GeForce2 MX card (no driver change, still using
built-in XFree 4.0.3 driver - not the NVIDIA binary-only driver - and
probably the card change is not relevant to the crash issue).  I will
go back to the old card and see if the crashes stop, but do not expect
them to.

Before the upgrade the machine was extremely stable - uptime at the
time of the upgrade was 45 days.
Comment 1 Chris Koresko 2004-06-29 19:29:15 EDT
Please disregard this bug report.  My machine turned out to be having
hardware problems.  My apologies for blaming it on the kernel - I got
fooled because the hardware had been reliable for years and I'd just
booted the new kernel when the problem appeared.
