Description Jure Pečar 2006-06-06 08:53:14 EDT
Description of problem:

First ... as this is an old machine (single p3/600, 440GX board, 512mb ecc ram) 
it is entirely possible that this is a hardware problem. I'm reporting it just 
in case it is not ...

This machine has 4 scsi disks configured in two md mirrors and lvm2 on top of 
them. This volume is then split in logical volumes for /, /var and /home (/boot 
is dedicated small mirror at the beginning of the first two disks).

While doing a bonnie++ run on /home, I started a small compile (powerdns) on / 
and was soon greeted with this oops:
