Novell Linux Desktop 9 (NLD9)
x86_64 architecture (AMD 64-bit or Intel EM64T)
Some applications like SAP and Oracle call "/sbin/sysctl -a" which will hang on kernel 2.6.5-7.276-smp, because of an issue with the toss_page_cache_nodes entry in /proc.
This issue is fixed as of kernel 2.6.5-7.282 and a fixed kernel is included in SLES9 Service Pack 4 and NLD9 Service Pack 4.
