Re: [2.4.21-rc7] AP1700-S5 system freeze :-((

Hello Andreas,

I am not quite sure if you are experiencing something similar to my problem.
Fact is this:

I have a serverworks based dual PIII board and I am experiencing freezes just
about every day.

Equal setups:

Kernel 2.4.21-rc7
00:00.0 Host bridge: ServerWorks CNB20HE Host Bridge (me: rev 23 you: rev 31)
00:00.1 Host bridge: ServerWorks CNB20HE Host Bridge (rev 01)

Lockups during light load


Just about everything else:
                       yours: mine:
Storage System: Symbios AIC
VGA : ATI Rage XL ATI Radeon RV200
Network : Intel/3com Intel/Broadcom
Processor : Xeon UP PIII SMP

I could already produce oops-messages on the problem and mine all come up in
kmem_cache_alloc_batch. It would be interesting where your box freezes. It
cannot be at this same place, because the code is not there in UP.
Try this (in case you are not working in front of the box):

Start box and switch to text console, enter "setterm -blank 0" to disable
screen blanker. Wait for oops. If we are lucky you will see something, get a
pencil then :-)
