Kernel panics, aiee killing interupt handler, EIP faults, etc.... RH 8.0 is the most stable....at least it will boot up for a while (10 minutes) before taking a dump. Only after noapic is appended to grub though.
Kernel logs look fine...only thing out of the ordinary is a single cannot assign interrupt message. Other than that, clean.
These machines ran 2.2.x on RH 6.x for almost 2 years without reboot, reliable as the sunrise. They don't like
2.4.xsmp at all. Very frustrating.......and after two days of meta searches, no answers.
So you just plopped in the RH9 cd and booted 'er up for install and no issues running a SMP kernel???
These quad Xeon machines are base on the Intel 450NX xhipset...only errata I found for any distro of Linux was an issue with the IDE DMA controller being disabled.
Help me fix this, and I will hand a case of your choice malted beverage to the UPS guy for immediate delivery.
yes, a serveraid 3HB w/64mb cache....however, I tried removing it and just booting from the onboard aic7xxx controller....no difference. The kernel panics continue.
I have also used an AMI megaraid controller and a LSI logic 53c8XX controller....no difference. I do no think it is a scsi issue.
How much memory does your 7000M10 have??? My three machines all have 4gb......
I ran the onboard diagnosics....no problems. Also installed Win2K Advanced Server, no issues with Win2K.....???? Installed all of the Netfinity 7000M10 drivers for Win2K, no problems with any onboard devices.
