Description of problem:
My laptop (IBM ThinkPad A22p) has been working nicely with FC2 for
kernel versions up to and including kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2. With the
upgrade to kernel-2.6.8-1.521, various problems have surfaced the most
serious of which are:
- kernel NULL pointer dereference during shutdown (100% reproducable)
- Matlab R13/R14 will not run with this kernel
- numerous kernel errors of the form:
"kernel: Hw. address read/write mismap 0"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kernel-2.6.8-1.521
2. watch MatLAB R13/R14 fail to work
3. notice as the laptop hangs during shutdown
Why would a kernel version upgrade cause a user-space app like MatLAB
to fail to work like this? It seems very odd to me but it is
completely reproducable. And it happens on both my laptop (PIII) and
desktop (Athlon XP) systems.

mass update for old bugs:
Is this still a problem with the 2.6.9 based update kernel ?
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.
