Description Pavel 2003-05-22 12:43:12 UTC
Description of problem:
There is servers on INTEL motherboard STL2, 2xPIII 933 256mb ECC RAM.
Really is working as a lan&wan router.
Two ethernet connectors, first have real ip, second private. From second there's 
SNAT for one ip address through iptables. There is one dedicated ppp connect to 
remote private LAN.
Actually there are some demons: ssh, pppd, zebra.
The problem is when booting PC in SPM mode. After max 2-3 hours server's 
freeze and no anything console messeges.
In one CPU mode no problems. SMP related options in kernel (noapic and etc.) 
don't help. With nmi_watchdog=1 console=tty0 console=ttyS1,19200n8 i am have 
in console:
EIP:    0010:[<c010ae30>]    Not tainted

console shuts up ...

I am try some versions of kernel 2.4 and linux distributions (ASPLinux7.3, 
Connectiva80 ...) - the same result. With previus installation RH70 kernel 2.2.20 all 
working stable.
Have anybody some problems ?
