Description of problem:
If I run dmidecode it outputs:
# dmidecode 2.2
SMBIOS 2.33 present.
42 structures occupying 1312 bytes.
Table at 0xFBF7C000.
The no other output. I can then establish another ssh session, but as
soon as a execute a command that command just stops and returns nothing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run dmidecode on eServer 325
2. establish another login and run a command
Expected Results: I would hope that dmidecode would work or at least
tell me my machine is unsupported and not cause problems with starting
As you can imagine this is kind of hard to debug without being able to
run new commands. I have a machine that isn't in production so I can
experiment if there is something to do that can be recommended.
