With UP kernel it runs fine.
There are no kernel messages.
System is a P4 with HT.

You are better off reporting this to the JRE vendors (for Sun go to

see where this is crashing and can determine whether it is actually a bug in the
Comment 2 Ronny Buchmann 2004-12-07 13:44:56 EST
It's ok with kernel-smp-2.6.9-1.698_FC3.

Could the 4G/4G split have been the cause?
