Description Chris Lumens 2007-05-16 12:26:08 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Doing a network install with ipv4 and ipv6 selected on a machine with an e1000
network card, I'm seeing a frequent kernel panic.  The text of the panic is
attached to this bug.

How reproducible:
Not 100%, but occurs more often than not.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hook up a serial cable.
2. Do a network install, selecting the defaults of ipv4 and ipv6 selected.
3. Keep trying until you get a panic.

I get a similar, but not quite identical, traceback on 3168.  Here's a picture.

(the machine I've got this on is a t41 in the docking station)

From Intel:

this is lacking a lot of debugging info. Please post *all* the dmesg output,
lspci -vvv, ethtool -e ethX, etc. in the bugzilla.

(Originally posted this to #220725, but I was pointed to this bug.)

I'm using a ThinkPad R50 and kernel 2.6.21-1.3163.fc7. Cold start (power off and
on) works ok, but after issuing the command 'reboot', booting ends with a kernel
panic and the following message:

  EIP: [<f8a8944f>] e1000_clean+0x1d6/0x23a [e1000] SS:ESP 0068:c0762fa8
  Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt

This is reproducible: cold start works every time and reboot fails every time.

lspci says that the NIC is Intel 82540EP, rev 03

I will attach full dmesg and lspci -vvv output.

Dave has a patch from Intel that should fix this in the next kernel.
