kernel-2.4.7-10 has been superceded by what by now is a dozen updated releases
which fix quite a massive amount of security issues and bugs. Please try the
latest erratum update.

Comment 2 Brian Brock 2003-06-24 16:36:37 UTC
agreed, closing this bug.  If you encounter a problem with kernel-2.4.20-18.7 or
later, please open another bug report and include the error messages.
