Description of problem:
Hi all,

I am using software RAID (Mirror) two 200GB SATA drives 3.6GHZ 800FSB processors. Tyan 5350 MB. 4GB RAM with CentOS 4.0 and when I do yum update and reboot the machine the machine gives a Kernel Panic. I also tried a 3ware raid controller but no luck. The same kernel works fine with single drives.

Any ideas what is going on.

Thanks in advance

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install CentOS 4.0
2.yum update

Actual Results:  Kernel Panics when the system comes up.

Expected Results:  The system should normally come up with New Kernel. Booting in UP doesnt help.
The system works fine wiht older Kernel 2.6.9-5.0.3.ELsmp woht both Software RAID and 3ware card raid.

You will need to post the trace that is printed when the kernel panics. If you
can post that, we may be able to determine what is wrong.
