Description pinkyred 2006-09-08 20:18:14 UTC
Description of problem:

I am running Fc5 2.6.17-2174 on a Tyan 2665 mobo with 4GB memory, dual xeon.  
I run several virtual machines (win2k3 server) as guests on this vmware server 
1.0 host.  Everything works great until:

When I launch backup exec to do a disk to disk backup (from sata raid on a 
2420SA, to an IDE drive hdb), the linux host goes into a kernel panic.  
Details of the console output are in the attached.  The first few lines show:

List corruption. next->prev should be f7481858, but was f748313c

We can't debug problems where proprietary modules have been loaded.
