Description Need Real Name 2003-04-15 01:50:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Since installing shrike a week ago I have experoienced hard lockups 2-8 times a day.

Occasionally it is an oops, but more commonly a hard lock with no input possible
(and the system locked solid)
I have tried -2.4.20-9 as well as the standard -8 kernel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.4.20-9, 2.4.20-8,2.4.20-54

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have the computer on 

Actual Results:  Hard lock after a period of time which varies, sometimes
immediate, sometimes after a few hours

Expected Results:  no lock

Additional info:

Comment 1 Michael Lee Yohe 2003-04-15 14:36:18 UTC
This bug is not very descriptive.  It would be a safe assumption that RHL9 is
not locking most machines out there (else it would have made CNN!)  A brief
description of the contents of your computer would be helpful.

You should include _at the very least_ the following:

1) Summary of your hardware configuration.
2) The output of "dmesg" after booting up.
3) The output of "lsmod" after booting up.
4) The contents of /proc/pci.

Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2003-04-18 15:36:15 UTC
unfortionatly in your custom compile you disabled CONFIG_KALLSYMS (which is used
to automatically resolve function names to those hex addresses)

Comment 5 Need Real Name 2003-07-28 16:00:51 UTC
Apologies - in the end this turned out to be a fan that worked when it felt 
like it.

Since I got a new fan everything is fine again, just co-incidence in timing
