Server :: Kernel Panic - WARNING: Can't Access (null) Exec Of Init ((null)) Failed

Aug 5, 2010

I have a server running Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES ( When it starts up I get the following error: Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel. Red Hat nash version starting WARNING: can't access (null) exec of init ((null)) failed!!!: 14 unmount /initrd/dev failed: 2 Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

After that I got no response from the OS. I have the installation CD, so I tried to start the rescue mode, while going through the steps I received an error stating that mounting to /mnt/sysimage failed and that if I want to I can access a shell. I really don't know what to do from here

Debian Configuration :: NFS Shares In Fstab - Error: Mount.nfs4: Access Denied By Server While Mounting (null)

Feb 2, 2010

I run a mediaserver on Archlinux, working perfectly (or almost). I have set up NFS v3 and that worked for me on these clients:

- Debian Lenny
- Archlinux 64bit

Now I've upgraded my Lenny-box to squeeze and I see that 2 of my 3 shared folders (tdone and twatch) are mounted like they should and the third one (media) doesn't come up. A 'mount -a' as root gives this error: mount.nfs4: access denied by server while mounting (null) My relevant fstab-lines:


how I can go about debugging this?

Fedora :: ERROR: Gsearchtool-spinner.c:666:bump_spinner_frame_cb: Assertion Failed: (frame != NULL)

Jun 29, 2010

my gnome searchtool crashes everytime I search something. Runnung gnome-search-tool from terminal I get the following error:


ERROR:gsearchtool-spinner.c:666:bump_spinner_frame_cb: assertion failed: (frame != NULL)

I could locate the reason for this as far as it has something to do with my icon theme. I use Mac4Lin Icon theme, which is the one causing those crashes. With another one it works fine.So the problem is now, that I don't want to change the theme, I want to find out what's the matter and fix it. Because the error message says something about spinner I tried to erase the folders "actions" and "spinner" first, but with no effect, so I restored them. how to find out exactly what's the issue or which icon causes the crash?

General :: Kernel Panic - Not Syncing - No Init Found - Try Passing Init - Option To Kernel

Apr 19, 2011

Im am building a Linux distro. It will be very tiny and fast.

I only have a minimal linuxkernel (bzImage) who is 1,2 mb big. And then I have Busybox who is 174,6 kb big.

The commands in busybox is: cd, ls, mkdir, rmdir, wget, httpd, clear, rm, poweroff, halt, reboot, fdisk, mount, umount, free, and cp.

When I compiled the kernel i use initramfs/initrd function and point it to a folder where initrd/initramfs source is.

The kernel works OK with others initramfs/initrd files. But not with my own.


Here is how the end of the kernelcomplie look like.


Here is my init file who is the initrd/initramfs source.


The initramfs folder contains "bin" (folder) and "init" a file. No more.

The problem is that the kernel cannot find/read init file.

Programming :: Null Pointer In Bash?

May 19, 2011

sed -n 8p file.txt

returns the 8th line to the StdOut.

If I assign the value to the variable line = $(sed -n 8p file.txt)

and now print it out with echo

echo $line

the line would be printed.

But what if the file has only 4 lines. What value would be assigned to the variable line?

I want to know that because I want to only print it if the value is "something", that is not null.

In Java for example I would do it like this...
String line = "";
line = reader.readLine(); // or anything else..

How would I check if the value is not "null"(I don't know if bash knows null)

General :: Opening Text File After Doing /dev/null

Dec 8, 2010

I ran a program that writes continuously from 1 every line. After some time I ran '/dev/null > temp' Problem1: bash: /dev/null: Permission denied (Yes, the permissions of /dev/null are correct ... crw-rw-rw-. I removed and created it again, but no change) I used 'cat temp' to see the contents and first few lines deleted (working correctly). Problem2: I can't open the file (with double click or with any graphical editor like gedit)

Apart from these problems, I have another question... Is there a way to trim a active log file to say 80% without affecting any logs that server might be writing.

Software :: Pop-up - Program Executable - Null - Could Not Be Found ?

Dec 10, 2010

I've installed a few too many interesting items with Yumex into Fedora-14..

When I click to download an interesting pix, for my editing hobby, I get this here pop-up after saving the pix:

"The program executable (null) could not be found. Make sure that ClamAV/ClamWin is installed properly and check the Fireclam settings."

I searched Yumex for Clam and Fireclam, and they aren't installed, and I don't want it installed, because Clam slows-down the operation a lot in these prehistoric old towers...

Seems I installed a peripheral for Null and Clam, but what could it be..? I've searched through Yumex.. I just can't figure it...

I installed all the "nulls", hoping that would eliminate that irritating pop-up.. It didn't... Seems my only option is to reinstall the OS to get rid of the pop-up.. Is there another option?..

Debian Programming :: R Graphics Can't Be Viewed On Null Device

I have the core Jessie packages for R, so I don't think that is the issue.

General :: Use Gedit To Open File With Null Characters?

Feb 15, 2011

I know GEdit has a bug which prevents it from opening a file with null () characters in it. This is a huge inconvenience for me because I frequently have to open big log files with only a couple rogue 's in them.

Sometimes I just run a quick tr -d '' < file.log > file.log.correct and open the correct file. This is a big nuisance. I would like to have maybe an external tool in GEdit that would execute the above command. I tried writing an external tool action (GEdit plugin) using just:

tr -d ''

Input is "current document", output action is "replace current document". But this isn't working. When I open the file, GEdit shows the familiar red warning; activating the external tool with the warning showing apparently has no effect (I think the script is being called but its input/output are not set).

Security :: New Flaw Enables Null Pointer Exploits?

Jul 18, 2009

I refrained from posting this in the Kernel Vulns thread earlier, due to its zero-day status. But now that the issue has been Slashdotted, there's no use in keeping us from publicly discussing this vulnerability. The link to the article (from which I quote below) is here. Brad Spengler's original announcement on the Dailydave mailing list is here.Quote:A researcher has published exploit code for a new vulnerability he discovered in the Linux kernel. The vulnerability is an especially interesting one in that the researcher who discovered it, Brad Spengler, has demonstrated that he can use the weakness to defeat many of the add-on security protections offered by SELinux and AppArmor.
