java crashes on 2.4.21-20.ELsmp kernel
 
Has anyone seen a problem where /usr/bin/java seg faults using the
2.4.21-20.ELsmp kernel?

Here is a summary of the situation:

OS: RHEL 3
kernel: 2.4.21-20.ELsmp
java: j2re-1.4.2-9
system: Dell Precision 470n 2x3.2GHz Xeon

/usr/bin/java seg faults. Any application that uses Java will fail to
run.

This problem does *not* happen if I use the uniprocessor kernel. It only
happens on the *smp* kernel.

I have other systems running the same kernel that are fine, but this is
the only Precision 470n I have and it is the only system having the
problem.

If anyone has seen this or has any suggestions, I would appreciate your
ideas.

Thanks!
-Roger

Add the noexec=off option to the kernel line of the SMP kernel you wish to boot from in /etc/grub.conf, for example:

default=3
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.4.21-23.EL)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.21-23.EL ro root=LABEL=/ noexec=off
initrd /initrd-2.4.21-23.EL.img

Save the file then reboot the system and try running java now.
