ah the gdth driver:
we fixed a shutdown oops recently, a kernel for testing this is available from:
I forgot it is very importent. The problem onla happends when using
Multiprocessor Kernel. After boot with Singleprocessor Kernel everything is OK!
I have downloaded kernel-smp-2.4.18-17.2.i686.rpm for testing, but during the
installation there is a message that my kernel 2.4.18-17.7.xsmp is newer than
that one I want to install.
If the fix for this problem in the 2.4.18-7.2 kernel is just a single line
change in scsi.c, can you port it to the redhatAS kernel? Through the AS support
i couldn't get the patch (so much about the payable support). I kinda NEED the
gdth driver working in the 2.4.9e.10 kernel.
firstname.lastname@example.org: please open a separate bug for that
see bug #76240.
