linux crash on SMP


I am having some problem with one of our SMP machine running RH 6.1 kernel-2.2.12-20smp. Once a while this machine will crash without any reason, the console just hang.

I have seen the following error message in the syslog

>wait_on_bh, CPU 0:
>irq: 0 [0 0]
>bh: 1 [0 1]

Re: linux crash on SMP


What kind of CPUs and motherboard do you have? And what programs are you running on this box?
