Description Jesse Glick 2005-05-13 18:02:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
From time to time when running a development version of the NetBeans IDE on JDK 1.6 (currently 1.6.0-ea-b35), I get a kernel panic and the system crashes. I don't know for sure that the crash is caused by something Java is doing but I don't recall seeing this crash under other circumstances. Not positive that previous crashes had the same kernel error; I have only found a record for this one crash in /var/log/messages* so far. There is no apparent pattern to when it occurs, i.e. no specific action that I did.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:

Additional info:

Running FC3 with all updates on a Toshiba Tecra M2.

New crash

I just got another panic when launching the NB IDE with JDK 1.6.0, this time
during early startup of the app (not while it was up and running). But the
trace looks quite different, so it may be unrelated.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-05-17 21:15:31 EDT
cisco binary module has been shown to corrupt random bits of kernel memory.
its not something we can fix

I recommend looking into vpnc.
Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2005-05-18 12:09:27 EDT
OK, thanks for tip. Of course I was suspicious of the extra modules but did not
see anything in the kernel message info to implicate them.
