Description Tod Liebeck 2001-02-03 21:03:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.11 i686; Nav)

I was attempting to increase the number of virtual workspaces using
gnomecc.   I clicked on the "workspaces" tab and the system hung.  (I could
not ping it from other workstations, CTRL+ALT+F1-F7 didn't work,
CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to exit X, etc)  Upon inspection of /var/log/message, I
saw the following:

Feb  3 13:32:11 bigbear pppd[13582]: secondary DNS address
Feb  3 13:34:18 bigbear kernel: kernel BUG at vmscan.c:517!
Feb  3 13:34:18 bigbear kernel: invalid operand: 0000
Feb  3 13:39:54 bigbear syslogd 1.4-0: restart.

The first and last lines are not relevant to the crash, I included them
simply for context.  As of right now I cannot reproduce the bug but will
try to mimic the situation more exactly later.

The only modifications from stock on this sytem are the NVidia 0.9-6 X
driver & kernel module (compiled from source, installed without a hitch),
and the USB-Storage module for my Sandisk drive, which works much better
than in RH7.

I'd be more than happy to probive additional information, just email me.
