Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 32177
System hang when installing ldconfig
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
I am trying to install Linux on my old SUN Sparc Station II, as soon the installer reached the point of installing ldconfig the system give
the following message " Illegal function Watchdog reset" and the system has to be reboot.
This definitely is not a ldconfig error, instead it is either a kernel bug
on sun4c or perhaps some hardware issues.
We never supported sun4c.
Before I close this as "WONTFIX", may I have
an output of OBP words ".locals" ".registers" "ctrace"?
I am curious, what is broken... I strongly suspect
hardware, but who knows.
OK, a correction... We did support sun4c in ancient revisions,
and stopped it in 6.x.
It really pains me to admit that, but I basically have
no time to investigate this properly. Unless the requestor
escalates the problem and makes sure the hardware is in
good order, I cannot help. Sorry.
