Description of problem:
On a Dell PowerEdge 2650 with RHEL 3.0 AS, we recently ran up2date,
which installed the kernel-smp-2.4.21-20.EL package. This kernel
crashes on our hardware, while the kernel-2.4.21-20.EL kernel boots
just fine. The crash shows a kernel oops in what looks like the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel-smp-2.4.21-20.EL
3. Watch it crash with stack trace.
Actual Results: Crashes every time.
Expected Results: Normal system bootup.
Some more details:
kernel package (broken): kernel-smp-2.4.21-20.EL
kernel package (works): kernel-2.4.21-20.EL OR kernel-smp-2.4.21-15.EL
system memory: 2GB
system processors: (2) 2.8GHz Intel Xeon

NOTE: The SMP kernel crashes every time at the same place (though I
haven't been able to get a screen capture of it). The non-SMP kernel
boots successfully every time.
Please provide the console oops output.
This certainly looks like a dup of bug 131703. If you can confirm this
yourself, you don't need to send us the console oops output. Just
close this as a dup.
Yes, this looks like a duplicate of 131703. Sorry about that...
