Description Klaus-J. Wolf 2002-01-29 10:49:56 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; T312461)

Description of problem:
I have had major stability problems after using up2date which installed a 
packet "kernel-2.4.9-21.athlon.rpm". I stepped back to "kernel-2.4.9-
13.athlon.rpm" which made the problems disappear.

Stability: The kernel panicks oviously after some user program caused some file 
system access or the kernel itself wants to page.


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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. High base CPU load + any program causing file system access.
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  Something like a "blue screen" appeared, mainly a stack 
trace. ... If the kernel itself was heavily concerned, "Aiee, killing daemon." 
and some message about failed sync attempts.
