Bug Fix Advisory Updated 2.4 kernel fixes tg3 driver hang

Advisory: RHBA-2003:069-12
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2003-03-04
Last updated on: 2003-02-28
Affected Products: Red Hat Linux 7.1
Red Hat Linux 7.2
Red Hat Linux 7.3
Red Hat Linux 8.0

Details

Updated kernel packages for Red Hat Linux 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, and 8.0 are now
available that fix a deadlock with the tg3 driver on certain revisions of
the Broadcom 570x gigabit ethernet series

The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system.
This advisory deals with updates to Red Hat Linux 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, and 8.0.

Only users of Red Hat Linux 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, and 8.0 that have a Broadcom
gigabit ethernet card might need to upgrade to these packages; there are
no other new features present.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied, especially the additional
packages from RHSA-2002:205 and RHSA-2002:206 respectively.

The procedure for upgrading the kernel manually is documented at:

http://www.redhat.com/support/docs/howto/kernel-upgrade/

Please read the directions for your architecture carefully before
proceeding with the kernel upgrade.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this to be an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat
Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system. Note that you need to select the kernel
explicitly on default configurations of up2date.
