RedHat AS2.1
Kernel: 2.4.9-e.12smp
Amanda-client-2.4.2p2-4

Tape server computer:
RedHat 8.0

This is clearly a kernel bug, since nothing any userspace app (including amanda)
does should ever cause a kernel crash.  I'm reassigning it to the kernel folks.
Comment 2 Larry Woodman 2003-02-25 13:35:58 EST
You really need to try and reproduce this before we can make any progress
debugging this issue.  This basically shows the system is in the netconsole
on one of the CPUs.  Can you attach a serial console and retry running
Amanda???

Comment 3 Boris Mironov 2003-02-25 13:41:03 EST
I use netdump-0.6.6-1 with ethernet connection to 'netdump-server'.
Is it OK? ... Or should I install same thing for serial port?

Thanks,
Boris

Hello,

Kernel 2.4.9-e14.1smp seems to be free of the bug. Amanda works just fine 
during last several weeks.

Thanks,
Boris
