FC5 kernel crash on Supermicro dual XEON workstation
Last modified: 2008-01-19 23:38:30 EST
Description of problem:
Upgraded my Supermicro dual xeon workstation from FC4->FC5. Following upgrade,
system locked up requiring hard reboot (could not ping or ssh into the box).
Applied updates as of 4/5 including kernel 2.6.16-1.2080. REbooted into SMP
kernel and system has locked up several times. Now trying UP kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC5 with kenel 2.6.16-1.2080 UP and SMP
Supermicro dual 2.4G XEON X5DAL-G/X5DAL-TG2 w/ 2G RAM
hyperthread (HT) enabled
dual 120G ATAPI disks
M-Audio Delta-66 sound (Envy24)
USB with USB hub
Radeon RV100 QY [Radeon 7000/VE] (x.org loads radeon_drv and ati_drv)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot (default is runlevel 3)
2. start X and try to use computer
3. Computer locks up in a few minutes
Hard lockup. Cannot ping box.
Additional info: can provide if requested
UP version of 2.6.16-1.2069 seems stable (up for weeks). Have not tested stock
(kernel.org) kernel nor an additonal FC updated kernel.
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.
Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.
This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO state.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5
have reported that installing a kernel update has left their
systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.
If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different
problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.
(this is a mass-close to kernel bugs in NEEDINFO state)
