Description of problem:
The system gets into some(???) state where attmeping to issue the sync
command from the shell prompt, or shutting the ssytem down (which
issues the sync command) cases a kernel oops. After issueing either
init 0 or 6 at the shel pormpt the system will hang when attempting to
unmount disks. Since the disks can not be unmounted, the system can
not be cleanly shutdown. I will attach the output from syslog as well
as some information about my running system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wait for system to get into this funky state
2. issue the sync command
3. try to shutdown
Actual Results: kernel oops
Expected Results: a nice clean sync of the disks and system shutdown

can you try and repeat this with the 2.6.9 update kernel please ?
At first glance it appears the problem is resolved. I am remote to the system
right now, and have issued the sync command about a dozen times. When I get in
front of the machine I will try a shutdown. So far so good.
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
