ah the gdth driver:
we fixed a shutdown oops recently, a kernel for testing this is available from:

Comment 3 Borys Wojcik 2002-11-06 14:12:04 UTC
I forgot it is very importent. The problem onla happends when using 
Multiprocessor Kernel. After boot with Singleprocessor Kernel everything is OK!

Comment 4 Borys Wojcik 2002-11-06 15:29:49 UTC
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.

Comment 5 Jure Pecar 2002-11-26 00:08:06 UTC
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.

Comment 6 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-26 10:02:31 UTC
jure.pecar@select-tech.si: please open a separate bug for that

Comment 7 Jure Pecar 2002-11-26 12:29:52 UTC
see bug #76240.

Comment 8 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:40:09 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
