I have 3 dual processor IBM Netfinity Servers with the XEON P3 (1Mb Cache).

The machine type is IBM Type 8665-6RY.

I recently updated from the 2.4.19 to the 2.4.20 kernel using Debian
Sarge source tree. Both machines gave me a hard crash after a few hours
of running. Since both machines locked solid, logging is limited.

One of the machines which was under a heavy load crashed
within 1/2 hour of running. I compiled both kernels with the old
2.4.19 .config file.

Does anyone know of any SMP problems with the 2.4.20 kernel ?


same happened to us when we upgraded our xSeries 340 DP to 2.4.20. After replacing every conceivable part of the machine, we tried a 2.4.21rc6 which now seems to work fine on our test system. The production machines have been downgraded to 2.4.19 until all tests have been
completed successfully.

Hope this helps.
