Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-05-22 05:32:59 EDT
please check the erratum kernel; at least something that could cause this is
fixed there.
Comment 4 Zoran Dzelajlija 2003-05-22 06:23:54 EDT
Sorry, I'm not familiar with RedHat; where can I find the changelog for the
updates version?
Comment 5 Zoran Dzelajlija 2003-08-21 17:06:45 EDT
I've been running the newer kernel package for over a month and it seems
the problem is gone.

almost exact same oops.
Comment 7 Zoran Dzelajlija 2004-03-14 12:11:21 EST
This last oops is from 2.4.20-30.9smp, same shrike installation but moved to a
P4/2.8GHz machine, HyperThreading turned off.

Comment 8 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:40:52 EDT
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/
