Description alex 1998-12-04 06:45:18 UTC
I am using kernel 2.0.36, and I have just established a linear drive array using my onboard EIDE controllers, and three hard drives (a WD 10.1G [hdb], and two Fujitsu 10.2G [hdc & hdd]). The motherboard is an Asus TX97-E with the latest BIOS. When copying large amounts of data to the drives (mounted as md0 to /home) either by Samba or FTP over our internal 100base-TX network, I get a kernel panic after a few minutes of data transfer. I was under the impression that the linear drivers included with the kernel were of production quality, so the kernel panic (now two of them in a one-hour time span) have me quite concerned.

Are you using the 2.0.36 kernel that we have made available at ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/updates/5.2/i386 or are you using a source package obtained from elsewhere? If possible could you install the update kernel and see if the problem reoccurs. Also when it happens is there any specific information or is it a generic kernel panic error?
