You may want to take this problem to hackers@ (with more details about the panic and the hardware involved - the actual panic message and dmesg output) and see if anyone is aware of the problem. Since 5 is in heavy development, it's possible that this problem has already been dealt with and fixed in 5-CURRENT. If not, I'm sure the development team would be interested in your assistance in fixing it. > > Thanks > Dave > > -----Original Message----- > From: Albert Shih [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] > Sent: 04 June 2004 01:47 PM > To: Dave Raven > Cc: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Subject: Re: 5.2.1 SMP problems > > > Le 04/06/2004 à 11:47:14+0200, Dave Raven a écrit > > Hi all, > > Installed 5.2.1 on a high load server - albeit not recommended - and > > it was working perfectly with SMP support.
