Description Aleksandar Stojadinovic 2001-12-01 22:19:57 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; Q312461)

Description of problem:
crash02 is able to reboot/crash/panic all Redhat 7.2 installations with 
kernel from kernel-xx-2.4.9-xx-rpm package run as nobody or any other non 
root user.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.get package from http://ltp.sourceforge.net/, make
2. su nobody ( or anyone non root )
3. start crash02 test in testcases/misc/crash/
4. run ~10 times, sometimes pres Ctrl-C upon execution, sometimes not.

Actual Results:  Kernel panic or system reboot.

Expected Results:  Kernel is unable to handle ...
Aiee ...

Additional info:

Hardware is different on 3 test machines. (MB, LAN, video, memory,
DE/SCSI  - diff. vendors, diff. types...).
RH installation (7.2, 7.1) is clean or with all security updates from RH 
site - same result.
Only way to survive the crash02 test is to stay on 2.4.3 kernel

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
