Description of problem:
I am using RH7.2 (kernel 2.4.9-21, glibc 2.2.4-19.3, i386 packages), and after
updating kernel form 2.4.9-13 to 2.4.9-21, jdk1.3.1 crashes.
The output is below, I don't make an attachment, because there isn't a core dump
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Execute a graphical application like the demos bundled with jdk1.3.1
2.From command line type "java -version"
Actual Results: "Another exception has been detected while we were handling
Dumping information about last error:
Error report file = (N/A)
PC = 0x0x402690e8
Signal = 11
Function Name = (N/A)
Library Name = (N/A)
Please check error report file for further information, if there is any.
Expected Results: Just the version info of JVM.
I know that glibc2.2 and jdk have some problems, but I guess this is a bug in
kernel. Before updating, there wasn't such a problem, and I made three fresh
installs and almost proved that this problem comes with the new kernel.
My computer is P2-400 with 256 mb of ram, 512 mb swap, RH 7.2 with official updates.
I hope you people have enough time and interest to solve this bug.
