Hi all,

I'm having a bit of a problem with a CentOS box. It ocasionally
crashes/freezes.  I configured to send all kernel logging to a
remote box so I've been able to catch one kernel crash:

[root at ioana ~]# rpm -qa|grep kernel
kernel-utils-2.4-13.1.80
kernel-2.6.9-34.EL
kernel-devel-2.6.9-34.EL

I tried searching for the file that was reported to contain the bug,
but I found nothing:
[root at ioana ~]# find /usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-34.EL-i686 -name ldt.c
[root at ioana ~]# 

Does anybody know what is going on? What can I do to debug this... ?

TIA,
Alex
