[Bug kprobes/3785] mismatched kernel and debuginfo architecture causing system crashes

------- Additional Comments From wcohen at redhat dot com  2007-01-09 15:13 -------
This is caused by FC6 installing a i586 kernel and kernel-devel rather than a
i686 kernel and kernel-devel on the laptop and i686 debuginfo being installed.
Systemtap checks that the debuginfo version but not the architecture. The
mismatch causes some probes to be off. Can check that architecture information
is reasonable with

 rpm -qa --queryformat "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n" | grep kernel

The kernel-debuginfo, kernel, and kernel-devel should be for the same arch.

It appears that anaconda installed the incorrect architecture kernel on the machine.
