Description Manoj 2005-03-16 07:12:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
The last two releases of Kernel patches ( https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-016.html and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2004-504.html ) causes the system to hang/panic/unbootable during dce install, system reboot. Till kernel patch# e.47 (https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2004-327.html ), everything worked fine. This problem occurs from pathch e.52 onwards.

This dce is based on Jim Doyle's http://www.bu.edu/~jrd/FreeDCE/ (the link no longer is there).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install the dce.rpm file


Actual Results:  The system hangs.

Expected Results:  The rpm should have been installed and the dce sevices started.

Additional info:

When the dce rpm is installed, the systems hangs while installing. Initial investigations have shown that after dce.rpm package installation while starting the dce services which is done automatically, this problem occurs.  It then becomes unbootable. It needs to be booted in single user mode, the dce rpm is removed and then once again the system is booted.

Apprently, from the assoicated IT, #68761 says that this patch works.

We are seeing the same problem with kernel e.52 and e.56 when the HP OpenView 
Agent is installed and trys to install the DCE rpm, the kernel panics and 
cannot be rebooted in the new kernel until the rpm is removed. We have opened 
a case with the HP Linux support: 3210628024 and with HP OpenView support:

It's going into the next errata build.

A fix for this has been committed to the RHEL2.1 source tree for inclusion in
the next security errata.
