Description steve 2002-03-27 00:42:39 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux alpha; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020314

Description of problem:
The 2.4.3-12 kernel hangs during SCSI disk activity. The system locks up  so
that only the reset button can restart the computer.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1./sbin/dump a large file system

Actual Results:  System locks up. No response to keyboard, mouse or network.

Additional info:

There is no output, the system simply hangs. The 2.4.9 kernel is even worse, as
it does not even boot.

The system is a PC164 with the latest (for PC164) srm console. I have an
intraserver SCSI card. When I use a 2.4.18 kernel compiled from the pristine
sources, the system is stable, the hanging does not occur.

Alpha is no longer a supported platform
