I've submitted bug 361214 about the frequent sparc SMP crashes with 2.6 kernels. Is anyone running a sparc 2.6 SMP kernel and NOT having the system crash under heavy disk I/O? Please let the bug know if you have any additional information. -- Blars Blarson firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.blars.org/blars.html With Microsoft, failure is not an option. It is a standard feature.
