1. Topic:

An updated kernel that fixes several bugs is available for Red Hat Linux 7.3.
An interaction between grub and machines using the DAC960 driver has been
resolved.  The Pentium IV SMP PGE/pagetable bug has also been fixed.  In
addition, bugs in the NFS client code have been fixed.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - athlon, i386, i586, i686

3. Problem description:

The NFS client in the Red Hat Linux 7.3 clients would negotiate a 32Kb
"window" when connecting to NetApp(tm) filers. This high value caused
several problems in practice.

There was an interaction between the grub bootloader and the Mylex
AcceleRAID/eXtremeRAID driver that caused the system to not find the root
filesystem if it resided on this controller.

Several other smaller bugs have been resolved as well.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

The procedure for upgrading the kernel manually is documented at:
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:


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.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):
