Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 196688
rhr2.0-3 MEMORY2 test hangs on RHEL3 with more than 4GB.
Last modified: 2008-07-17 18:03:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Memory2 test on the rhr2.0-3 kit never finishes if system has more that 4GB of
RAM installed. This only happens on RHEL3 x86. I have reproduced this on U7
and U6. This did not happen with the previous kit. MEM2 works fine with the
same amount of RAM on RHEL4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.0-3
How reproducible: Every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 3 U6 or U7 (x86) on a system that will have more than 4GB of
RAM free after the OS is running.
2. Install the 2.0-3 kit and run MEMORY2.
Actual results: MEM2 stops updating the output.log file after a couple hours
and never completes (I waited as much as 3 days). You have to ctrl-C to get
out of the test. At which point you end up with a result of "ERROR".
Expected results: Test should complete on it's own.
Additional info: Several test logs with varying amounts of RAM are attached.
