Description Matthew Galgoci 2000-06-29 14:52:06 EDT
There is at least one deadlock caused by the emu10k1 driver on smp 
systems. It does not happen immediately, but is triggered when playing
music via xmms, but not always immediately.

I don't know that the driver has been updated since zab added it to the 
kernel rpm (still not in official kernel).

I have not been able to get an oops. I may try running a serial console 
later today to see if I can get one. (does a deadlock even cause an oops?)

Try the kernel in Pinstripe; if that doesn't work, let me know and I'll
build or point you to something newer for you to try.
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2002-12-14 19:05:50 EST
The SMP deadlocks were fixed in later releases. Mr Johnson forgot to close the
bug however.
