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 (184.108.40.206.ELsmp). When it starts up I get the following error: Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel. Red Hat nash version 220.127.116.11 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
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:
Having an odd boot message with Ubuntu 10.04. I've had it since I first installed Ubuntu a few months back and I am getting tired of it slowing down my boot up time.No luck on the Ubuntu forums or bug reports; no one seems to know what to do.uote:udevd-work  open /dev/null failed no such file or directory
When using geeqie to browse a directory with .CR2 and .JPG files, the last pair of .CR2/.JPG is not shown in the list (on the left side of the UI). Moreover, after a few operations (PgUp/PgDn, etc.), I get:
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?
Well I want my sendmail to pipe all users' incoming emails to /dev/null ... I just don't want to accept emails. Every user that exist on the system currently or will be made in future, I want their incoming emails to them to be piped to /dev/null .... I just want those users to be able to send emails.
I just added an 80GB Maxtor 6Y080P0 HDD to my computer and when I'm booting into linux (Slackware 13.1) I get: ~ NTFS volume version 3.1.

I have been testing with "Add a physical serial port in Polled Mode to a VM using a Null Modem cable".I have been using HP ILOM for a while and need u guys help with "can I Connect the null modem serial cable from server port to the desktop which act as a terminal through ilom?
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.
How to resolve "kernel panic not syncing attempted to kill init" problem in Linux?? And why this error occurs? In my case, this error occurs when i boot my computer and after this error my computer goes on rebooting..
am trying to interface ade7758(adc) to at91sam9261...i have written a sample code which registers an spi driver and sends an address to ade7758 and receives a data...every thing is fine.My device is registered but kernel is giving a crash message....below is the message....
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:
#!/bin/bash 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).
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.
I setup postfix as a null client on my VPS to send only automated, outbound emails. I also have Google App mail for the domain (for sending receiving personalized emails), however, I receive the following in Gmail for emails sent by from Postfix. The destination email address are correct (tried a few of my personal email addresses). I once got Postfix to work, but no longer the case.
