Description of problem:
I have installed RedHat 9 on 2 Dell PowerEdge 1650s and 2 PowerEdge 2650s. They
have twin-P3 and twin-Xeon processors respectively. The Xeons have
hyperthreading enabled. If i limit bind to one processor only  it does not hang.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat 9 on a Dell PowerEdge 2650
2. Install bind
3. Start bind

Actual Results:  bind runs for about 10 seconds then hangs. One can not obtain
the daemon's status or perform queries on it.

Expected Results:  It should not hang.

Can you try this with 9-2-2 version on RawHide to see if the problem is fixed.


Comment 2 Chris Hills 2003-04-22 14:13:27 UTC
Thanks for the update... I'm afraid I cannot as all our twin-xeon servers are
now in production :(

Comment 3 Alex Man 2003-04-29 01:57:07 UTC
If it's in production, that's an extra reason to go ahead in upgrade to 9.2.2 
as it has security bugfixes. I'm using it in production and it works great.


Comment 4 Chris Hills 2003-04-29 09:48:44 UTC
How do I install it on Red Hat 9, bearing in mind it fails dependancy checks?

Comment 5 Chris Hills 2003-04-29 09:54:45 UTC
Never mind, used --nodeps.

This seems to have fixed it. It has been up a minute now with no hanging.

Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2003-04-29 10:42:06 UTC
One minute is good enough for me.  :^)  Reopen bug if it returns.

Thanks! Still going with no problems :)
