Description Christophe Dupre 2003-01-12 11:21:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
Installing Red Hat 7.3 was a breeze. I ran up2date to upgrade all the relevant
packages, including the kernel. On reboot, problems appeared: mounting / seems
to work, but when the startup scripts try to mount the other filesystems the
kernel seems to cause problems. I get errors like:
Jan 12 10:35:10 xanatos kernel: Unhandled SCSI Command: 0x4d.
(hundreds of them), followed by kernel overflows (tons of them, until I do a
hard reset). 

This happens with kernel 2.4.18-19.7.x both SMP and UP.

Booting with 2.4.18-3 SMP works, even though I get a few (2 or 3) 'Unhandled
SCSI Command: 0x4d' messages.

Server is a Dell PowerEdge 6450 with 4 P3 Xeon 700MHz, 4GB of RAM and a PERC2
raid controller. All the filesystems are on sda which is a RAID-5 volume. BIOS
and PERC controllers are running the latest version of the firmware, upgraded a
few days ago.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat 7.3
2. Upgrade kernel package using up2date
3. reboot

Actual Results:  SCSI error message, kernel overflow.

Expected Results:  Normal bootup, login prompt.

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/
