SubjectFw: Problems with Kernel 2.4.10 on SMP
Date

> Hello,
>
> I have witnessed the same problems on a Dual Processor Box running Kernel
> 2.4.9 (a Dell Poweredge 1400). I too couldn't find anything suspicous in
> the log file, but did see the "Locking Max Tag Count" message in the log
> that was mentioned below. I was forced to do a hard reset on the machine.
> Since the machine is our development server, having the machine running
well
> is obviously desirable (I'm sure everyone feels this way :) I was
planning
> on trying 2.4.10 to see if it was any different, but it looks like the
same
> problems exists. If anyone has any hints, please let me know.

> Configuration:
> Dell Poweredge 1400 Server
> Dual PIII Coppermine's at 1 GHz
> 768 Megs RAM
> Adaptec 29160 SCSI Controller Card (onboard controller disabled)
