Description of problem:
This is a dual PIII SMP (ASUS CUV4X-D Board) with a GDT6513RS SCSI-Raidcontroller, also attached to the GDT6513RS is a Sony SDT-10000 SCSI-Tape.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
tar tvf /dev/st0 => boom
The kernel crashed, with a backtrace on the console.
After that the system is unusable, i had to do a hard reboot (power off / on)
Is there a simple way to get the backtrace, beside making a copy by hand from the screen? Without this backtrace the bug is hard to find, i suppose.
I think we have the fix for this now. Will you be available to test it?
I'm eagerly waiting for a fix, so where can i download it? I will test it
Test kernels for this issue are at:
Please test and report back.
I can confirm that the crash has gone with the latest kernel-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6
(seems linux-2.6-20.4-SCSI-gdth-fix-oops.patch did it).
