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