Description Glen A. Foster 2003-02-25 18:17:38 EST
Description of problem: SSIA.  If I boot up an Intel RAID controller that is 
automatically discovered and bound to the 'gdth' driver, all is well until I 
perform a graceful shutdown via /usr/sbin/shutdown.  Then I get a panic.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q kernel

How reproducible: 100% (always)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add an Intel RAID controller to a system containing an everything install
of RHAS2.1 + 2.4.9-e.10 kernel -- uses 'gdth' driver
2. Boot up, make a file system on a RAID partition.
3. Run "shutdown"
Actual results: Attached.

Additional info: Let me know what else you need to troubleshoot/diagnose this.

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-26 04:39:10 EST
this is actually fixed in the e.12 erratum kernel.
Comment 3 Glen A. Foster 2003-02-26 11:31:34 EST
This is all well and good, thanks for the update.  How does one go about 
getting an 2.4.9-e.12enterprise kernel?  Must they compile it themselves,
or has the enterprise kernel been obsoleted, or what?

/me did an everything install of AS2.1 and ran up2date to get the newest
packages -- I have the following kernel RPMs:


... but no enterprise kernel.
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-26 11:58:17 EST
the "enterprise" kernel is only for 4Gb+ machines...
up2date kernel-enterprise will install it anyway but if you don't have more than
4Gb of ram you'll loose 6% performance.
Comment 5 Glen A. Foster 2003-03-07 15:32:30 EST
I've verified the -e.12 kernel resolves the panic-on-shutdown problem.
