Description Matt Ayres 2005-04-29 17:52:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
This is from domain0 running the kernel version stated.  I have tried updating to the version in the latest devel (rawhide) and the symptoms are worse (max of 10 minutes update).  I receive similar OOPS messages with the stock kernel so I do not think they are specific to Xen.  The system is Dual Opteron CPU's with 3ware 8504 hardware SATA raid controller and e1000 network card.  The below let the system still run, but eventually it will crash after 1-2 days.

See attachment for info from dmesg.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the server.

Comment 2 Rik van Riel 2005-05-16 17:17:45 EDT
Apparently this also happens with the normal kernel and not just xen.  The
changes to the e1000 driver in 2.4.16-rc3 and newer may be responsible for this
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-06-27 19:19:35 EDT
Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.
(Please retest on final release, and report results if you have not already done

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 17:10:44 EDT
[This comment has been added as a mass update for all FC4 kernel bugs.
 If you have migrated this bug from an FC3 bug today, ignore this comment.]

Please retest your problem with todays 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 update.

If your problem involved being unable to boot, or some hardware not being
detected correctly, please make sure your /etc/modprobe.conf is correct *BEFORE*
installing any kernel updates.
If in doubt, you can recreate this file using..

mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.bak
mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.bak

Thank you.

No response to the last message.  Is this problem still happening with current 
Fedora (and/or upstream) kernels? 
Comment 7 John W. Linville 2005-10-10 14:03:01 EDT
Closed due to lack of response.  Please re-open when the requested information 
becomes available...thanks!
