Hi, 
I'm having some stability problems with 2.2.11.
I have a DPT SmartRaid IV   (PM3334UW)
SMP (dual 400's on a 100mgz bus)

I was running RH 5.0 and a kernel from the 2.0 series (not sure which
one)
which had an excellent track record.  I just upgraded to RH 6 and
compiled 
the 2.2.11 kernel, to better use the SMP capabilities.

While compiling that kernel, I started getting ext2 errors, and on
reboot it had to
rebuild the drive.   A few days later, the system load went through the
roof
(around 50 before the system went completely unusable)  and there were
more
errors on reboot, even though I did succeed in shuting down properly.
Then, a few days later, (Sunday) I  walked in to find error message
like:

Out of memory for sendmail.

Out of memory for mingetty.

and so on...

Those crashes were using the recommended EATA/PCI  driver.    I just
recompiled to use
the EATA_DMA driver to see what happens.

Does anyone have any comments on this situation?  Let me know if I can
provide any more
information.

Please CC me  ( morto...@osprey.net ) with any replies.  Thanks!

	The newer kernels fixed it, I think: 
	I switched to 2.2.12 and it never happened again.

Get 2.2.12, anything between 2.2.6 and 2.2.11 did not make more than
two days uptime here on a similar setup. Since running 2.2.12, all
these problems are gone. I have 22 days uptime now.

BTW: I have seen the 1s-ping-time bug, too, on 2.2.12 with an Intel
EtherExpress Pro, short after restarting the network with the
/sbin/init.d/network scripts (Suse 6.2 distribution). Down/up'ing the
interface fixed it for a while. The problem re-appeared after several
hours and I had to reboot.

The oom problems were fixed in 2.2.12.
