Comment 5 Eric Sandeen 2010-06-14 16:40:02 UTC
The 'D' taint means you've previously encountered some other oops or BUG() so what you captured on the screen may not be the root cause of the problem.

looking in /var/log/messages, or dmesg, may yield the original problem.  If not, attaching a serial console might gather more information.


Comment 6 Levente Farkas 2010-06-17 10:18:06 UTC
this always happened after high load eg. build gcc in mock.
messages and dmesg doesn't contain anything.
how can i attach serial console and why i'll get more info?

Comment 7 Levente Farkas 2010-06-18 09:08:25 UTC
i can reproduce this crash in a an hour. what can i do to give you more info?

> i can reproduce this crash in a an hour. what can i do to give you more info?    

Levente, please hook your system up to a serial console and capture the full panic.  As Eric said, "D" taint indicates that a previous panic occurred which has likely scrolled off the screen.


Comment 9 Levente Farkas 2010-07-05 13:07:15 UTC
can you tell me how can i capture through serial console?
which kind of serial cable to use (we've got all kind of) and how can i capture the full panic?

sosreport for this machine

after we upgrade to beta2 we always got reboot (not crash) on this machine while try to rebuild glibc with:
mock -r rhel-6-i386 --define "rhel 6" --define ".el6 1" --define "dist .el6" --rebuild glibc-2.12-1.2.el6.src.rpm

This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

the problem goes away with newer kernel updates.
