Have you tried the U3 beta kernel? If so, does the problem persist? There is a
fix for another similar-looking problem in U3, we hope it fixes this one as well.
Which kernel version is it?
Where can I find it?
I have tried kernel-smp-2.6.9-22.0.1.ELsmp but it's the same.
Pleas can you tell me where I can download thie U3 beta kernel.
It is important for us to test it.
Have you managed to locate and install an up-to-date kernel? Does the problem
persist? I suspect it is fixed because we fixed similar problems in U3 and U4.
The problem is solved with RHEL4U3 kernel 2.6.9-34.ELsmp
Thanks for your help.
Customer reports problem is fixed in U3, closing CURRENTRELEASE
