NFS4 problem with kernel from fedora 7. - Resend as original has not appeared on any lists!

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have been struggling to update my machines to fedora 7 with the latest kernel. We are getting a crash of the kernel as shown below.

This happens when we run a "yum upgrade" operation. Our repositories are available on the local LAN segment and mounted via Autofs 5 over NFS4. The system is generally stable using this configuration for other purposes although we occasionally see the same failure when other operations are running. I have been unable to find any reference to this failure in association with this version of the kernel, although similar failures were reported about six months ago for 2.6.17 pre-release kernels.

Does anybody have any idea what is causing the failure, whether this is something that there is a fix for, and whether other people are seeing it and if so what work rounds they have used.

Traceback on the console is as follows:
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000000                      c
