View Full Version : FC4 smp freezes on dual P3 box

28th March 2006, 08:16 PM

I bought a used Dell PowerEdge 1300 dual processor server (2x450P3) as my home 'back-end' server.

All the FC4 2.6.* smp kernels I've tried on it (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp - 2.6.15-1.183_FC4smp) have resulted in the same problem:

after using the system for some time, it freezes/hangs completely without leaving any trace in /var/log/messages

(I tried the vdso=0 grub startup parm, but for no result.)

Could you help me on how should I proceed tackling this? Like giving hints on how to debug the system (trace kernel/X/? somehow??) or pointers to more proper place for advice? I'm getting a bit frustrated running the box with only one processor turned on... :-)
