Description Asaf Shamir 2006-04-26 05:31:16 UTC
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

2.6.16-1.2096_FC4smp #1 SMP Wed Apr 19 16:01:54 EDT 2006 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64

How reproducible:

Introducing some load on the system causes kernel to crash, machine is

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on machine, select the SMP kernel
2. Logon
3. Introduce some load (network / hdd)
4. Machine stops responding.

Actual results:

On SSH console:  kernel: invalid opcode: 0000 [1] SMP
On machine console: kernel dump. Last few lines mention something about cpu

Additional info:

4 x Xeon 3.0GHz
2GB Mem
2 x NIC, bonded
I2O raid-5hine boots and operates properly on normal

Attached /var/log/messages errors and cpuinfo
The machine boots and operates properly on normal kernels (non-smp)

[This comment added as part of a mass-update to all open FC4 kernel bugs]

FC4 has now transitioned to the Fedora legacy project, which will continue to
release security related updates for the kernel.  As this bug is not security
related, it is unlikely to be fixed in an update for FC4, and has been migrated
to FC5.

Please retest with Fedora Core 5.

Thank you.

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2006-10-16 19:35:22 UTC
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.
Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, if this bug is
still in this state in two weeks time, it will be closed.

Should this bug still be relevant after this period, the reporter
can reopen the bug at any time. Any other users on the Cc: list
of this bug can request that the bug be reopened by adding a
comment to the bug.

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.

Thank you.

(this is a mass-close to kernel bugs in NEEDINFO state)

As indicated previously there has been no update on the progress of this bug
therefore I am closing it as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Please re-open if the issue
still occurs for you and I will try to assist in its resolution. Thank you for
taking the time to report the initial bug.

If you believe that this bug was closed in error, please feel free to reopen
this bug.
