Description Joubert Berger 2002-01-11 23:16:34 UTC
Description of Problem:
While booting a newly compiled 2.4.9-12 kernel on an HP  rx4610
the machine panics with the string:

Kernel Panic:  Aiee, killin ginterrupt handler!
In interrupt handler - not syncing.

But the original binary RPM kernel boots fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have upgraded to firmware 99B.

How Reproducible:

Get the kernel-sources-2.4.9-12.ia64.rpm from update.redhat.com.
Copy the smp configuration file to .config
make oldconfig_nonint
make dep
make include/linux/version.h
make -j2 boot
make -j2 modules

Then install and boot.

The panic happens sometime after init starts.

Does 2.4.9-21 still do this ?

Comment 2 Joubert Berger 2002-02-11 19:53:52 UTC
On the RX4610, 2.4.9-21 seems to work.  

But on the i2000 it does not.  Firmware level is at 117C.
But the problem on the i2000 is that it reboots the machine.

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-02-11 19:59:10 UTC
And the non-rebuild (eg our binary) works on that machine ?

Comment 4 Joubert Berger 2002-02-11 20:41:59 UTC

On the rx4610 the rpm binaries seem to work.
On the i2000 they don't.

Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2002-02-11 20:46:20 UTC
Hmm so our binary works on both, and your own rebuild one doesn't.
Did you change anything ?

Comment 6 Joubert Berger 2002-02-11 22:11:07 UTC
No.  The binaries *only* work on the rx4610.
The same binaries don't work on the i2000.

Comment 7 Arjan van de Ven 2002-02-11 22:14:37 UTC
Any idea what an i2000 is? And how it's different from stock intel ia64 kit ?
