For hts you'll need lmbench-3.0a7-6.EL4 instead of lmbench-2.0.4-1.EL4. After
3.0a7-6 is installed, I would recommend and rpm -V of all of the package to
verify thier condition.
The memory test is getting passed in hts after installed lmbench-3.0a7-
6.EL4. So We can close this issue. Very thanks to help us to resolve this
