Comment 1 Ernie Petrides 2006-06-14 23:57:12 UTC
RHEL3 is now closed.  I also suggest updating to a more recent RHEL3 update.

Comment 2 Joe Thykattil 2006-06-15 14:11:09 UTC

We used RH3u4 in production and would like Red Hat to support it and help us.

Please let us know if there is specific patch that will fix this issue?

Kernel panic: Fatal exception

Comment 4 Ernie Petrides 2006-06-15 21:30:53 UTC
There was a potentially related patch that was committed to the
first post-U5 async security erratum (kernel version 2.4.21-32.0.1.EL).

But you should upgrade to the latest released kernel, i.e., U7 (which
is kernel version 2.4.21-40.EL).

If you build your own (unsupported) kernels, then you should look at
the patch in bug 141394 comment #129.

By the way, the latest U8 beta kernel (version 2.4.21-44.EL) is now in
the RHN beta channels, so you could also try that in a non-production
environment (which might be worthwhile if you have a reproducer).

Joe Thykattil (jthykattil@cme.com),

Is this still an issue?
