Comment 4 Linda Wang 2009-02-16 07:12:29 EST
Cai, does this still happened on
Comment 5 RHEL Product and Program Management 2009-02-16 10:43:58 EST
Updating PM score.
Comment 6 CAI Qian 2009-02-16 20:45:55 EST
Yes, I have still seen it with -120.el5 kernel,
I am trying the -128.el5 now, and will update once done.
Comment 8 CAI Qian 2009-05-01 12:33:29 EDT
The machine is available again. I'll reserve it, and test it as soon as possible.
Comment 9 CAI Qian 2009-05-04 03:55:03 EDT
Someone put an access key on this machine. I'll need to ask system admins to access it.
Comment 11 CAI Qian 2009-05-05 20:57:06 EDT
I'll close this one out, since the machine is still unavailable, and I have not seen it on any other machine so far.
