Description Jeremy Katz 2001-11-02 17:04:36 EST
Message on console is

Assertion failure in unmap_underlying_metadata() at buffer.c:1540:

Nothing at all special was being done on the ia64, mainly just sitting
there turned on.  Also, am now unable to log in on the console and the
already logged in shell is reporting that it can't fork() anymore...

Unfortunately, nothing useful or interesting in syslog
Comment 1 Stephen Tweedie 2001-11-13 13:42:30 EST
The console message should include a backtrace.  Did you capture that?
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2001-11-13 14:50:04 EST
Unfortunately, there wasn't one
Comment 3 Stephen Tweedie 2001-11-14 13:02:08 EST
Did you have a serial console set up?
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2001-11-14 13:10:33 EST
No, the machine is generally reinstalled on a multiple times a day basis for
anaconda testing...  it just happened to actually sit turned on for a few days
for a change and I happened to notice it.
Comment 5 Stephen Tweedie 2001-11-15 05:32:59 EST
Is this box normally reliable?  We do Cerberus testing on ia64 regularly and
have never seen anything like this, and the last time I got a bad b_jlist
report, it turned out to be bad ram.
