( no further logging, assumed hung )
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Sorry, don't know how to reproduce the access error.
Steps to Reproduce:
System was originally RH 7.1, then upgraded to RH7.3 using installer, then patched through 05 Aug 2002.
any chance of attaching dmesg ?
(it still looks weird, dmesg will give at least some hw info)
a year and a half later, no response. closing.
