Subject: Kernel 2.0.35 limits
Date: Fri, 15 Jun 2001 17:23:16 -0400 (EDT)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.4.33.0106151702300.22155-100000@stout.engsoc.carleton.ca> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20010615165204.C30332@sventech.com>

Just this morning, our firewall get a kernel panic after 500 days of
uptime.

As you can see from the log files, the date starts at June 15th, where we
get two div by zeros, then jumps May 11th, then a kernel panic. A reboot
brings it back to June 15th. Since cron could not open /dev/rtc. My first
thought was an internal kernel limit on the time, but 500 days seems a bit
short.

Any ideas ?
