Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 167105
random kernel panic after using ipt_owner kernel module
Last modified: 2014-06-18 04:28:32 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading acroread and acroread-plugin to version 7 from RHN kernel panics
after some minutes of using acroread-plugin with any PDF document.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (reproduced on two different boxes: desktop and laptop)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install described components
3.open and scroll down any pdf document from the web
kernel may panic few minutes later during other operations
stable working kernel
It may be related with scrolling of documents during download - I can not
reproduce it while browsing of already cached document.
Have you tried this with any other browser?
Also, you say always reproducable, but you also say that it 'may' panic a few
minutes later. Is it always, or is it just usually?
we need the output of the kernel panic to diagnose this.
Now I think it happens usually: yesterday evening I was able to easy reproduce
it dy using only acroread (not as plugin) and then downloading something by sftp
crashed the system. But this morning I cannot reproduce it.
I do not have kernel panic messages because it does not appears in logs nor on
screen - it happens in X Window. I will try to do a diskdump.

kernel messages at panic
Now I do not think it is acroread - it looks like a bug in ipt_owner kernel
module, that I've never used before.
Are you still experiencing this problem?
I'm closing this bugzilla as there was no answer to my ping. Feel free to
reopen the bug if the problem still occurs.
