Running the following command to disable CPU control in powernap works around this issue:

chmod -x /etc/pm/power.d/01cpu_online

Do you know if this only happens with the generic-pae kernel? Does it also happen with the server flavor?

Also, are you seeing this on any other hardware, or just the Dell PE/R210? Do you have other Dell servers you could test?

I haven't tried another kernel but can redo the test with the server flavour. I only have PE R210 available for testing.

Joseph, actually linux-image-server installs linux-image-generic-pae. Is there any other server kernel flavour ?

Joseph Salisbury (jsalisbury) wrote :


Ahh, right, your are testing 32 bit, which does not have a server flavour. The full list of flavours is available at:

For 32 bit, the only other flavours are generic and virtual. Do you have the option to test generic? Also, do you plan on testing 64 bit flavours to see if the issue happens there as well?

Thank you for taking the time to file a bug report on this issue.

However, given the number of bugs that the Kernel Team receives during any development cycle it is impossible for us to review them all. Therefore, we occasionally resort to using automated bots to request further testing. This is such a request.

We have noted that there is a newer version of the development kernel than the one you last tested when this issue was found. Please test again with the newer kernel and indicate in the bug if this issue still exists or not.

If the bug still exists, change the bug status from Incomplete to Confirmed. If the bug no longer exists, change the bug status from Incomplete to Fix Released.

If you want this bot to quit automatically requesting kernel tests, add a tag named: bot-stop-nagging.

 Thank you for your help, we really do appreciate it.
