Description of problem:
There seems to be a serious problem when using an IBM RSA II SlimLine in an (at least) IBM x336 Server.
When installing osa_ipmi-2.2.2-1.i386.rpm (OSA IPMI driver) from IBMs download site for IBM xSeries x336 (the module gets recompiled upon installation of the RPM) the system hangs after inserting the compiled module "osa_ipmidrvr.ko".
There is no kernel panic or similar indicators that might explain the problem. The system just "dies" silently.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. get an IBM x336 (or similar) with an IBM RSA II (SlimLine)
2. download the RPM from ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/pc_servers/osa_ipmi-2.2.2-1.i386.rpm
3. install the RPM
Actual Results: The system dies.
Expected Results: The system lives and should have loaded the module correctly.
please report problems with out of tree modules to their upstream vendors.
