Ubuntu :: Last Kernel Update Broke My System Too

Feb 7, 2010

Firstly my gdesklets have gone, and if I try to run gdesklets then I get a blank window in the top left corner, followed by another blank window in the centre which disappears, then the first one fades to gray.

Secondly, clicking the 'running man' to exit just closes both gnome panels.

Ubuntu 8.04 (2.6.24-25)I know 8.04 is pretty old now, and I should probably start over, but it was all fine until this latest update.

Hardware :: Intellistripe 65 Driver Kernel Panic - System Freezes

Sep 23, 2010

Previously we ran a 2.6.23 Linux kernel on our systems. We have now upgraded to a 2.6.32 kernel and are in the process of testing to make sure everything works. We have a driver for a Magtek Intellistripe 65 that was previously working in the 2.6.23 kernel. Originally it didn't want to be loaded into the 2.6.32 kernel at all. I had to make some changes to the code (ie replace kill_proc and other functions that have since been removed/replaced) and now when the card is removed the system freezes. I have a feeling that it could be to do with changes to usb-core, but i'm not sure.

I looked through and diffed the kernel for changes to usb-core, but i cant see any earth shattering changes to it, so i believe it still should be working fine. I've tried my modified version on the 2.6.23 kernel, and its all working fine, so it wasn't my changes that broke it.

Fedora :: How To Fix Kernel-panic

Mar 28, 2011

Recently i've been playing with few variations of linux distros since my Windows XP got infected with something that makes anything flash-player related crash or restart computer even(im saying this because it might be related), reinstall didn't help fix it so i decided to better switch back to Linux world and tried some newest distros. Everything was nice untill..recently some distros after installation gave me kernel-panic or caps lock+scroll lock lights blinking..trouble is Fedora 14 just gave me same stuff after i went maybe 5mins away from keyboard with web browser open then came back to notice..if at first i thought it was wrongly made distribution now i'm bit scared that my PC is dying..i did basic search in google and people say it may be related to hardware beeing too old or drivers but when i use it then i don't encounter this - just when afk. I have almost none experience in Fedora so was just wondering if someone could point me to right direction

Fedora Installation :: Kernel Panic On A HP?

Oct 1, 2009

The Fedora 11 Live CD was tested on a Dell and it is good. On the HP Pavilion a705w, with an Intel Celeron 2.93HHz w 760MB RAM, the install fails with kernel panic. The cd was burned on the HP.

A colleague suggested that the HP may not be compatible with the kernel. Are there startup settings that I might try to diagnose the panic issue? Perhaps there is a verbose boot up process that pauses so one can take notes?

Fedora :: F12 Kernel Panic - Cannot Use Yum To Install Software

Jan 2, 2010

I've decided to switch one of my workstations from debian to fedora and I have some issues that I would like to discuss. I've installed the fedora 12 from a live cd and everything worked fine but when I use yum to install software the caps lock key blinds and my old acer 1.5 celeron laptop freezes. Using lmsensors I've noticed that the cpu temp is miniumun 60 degrees and the cpu fan is always on. I've used google and found some ways others tried to resolve this but none worked.
I thing it's a kernel bug so I want to know how to collect all the data.

Fedora Installation :: Kernel Panic - Not Syncing VFS ?

Jun 10, 2010

I've been using Linux for a few years, but this is my first time using Fedora. I installed it on an old computer last night and rebooted, and everything seemed good. I let it start to install updates, but after they were about half done I stopped it, turned the computer off, and went to bed. I know that was stupid of me, and I'm afraid it screwed something up because now when I boot I get the error "kernel panic-not syncing VFS:unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)".

When I looked up the error on Google it seems a lot of people get this after installing a kernel incorrectly, so could stopping the update in the middle perhaps screwed with my kernel? Could I simply chroot into the installation from the live CD and run 'yum install kernel26'?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Kernel Panic Following Bad Power Cycle

Apr 20, 2010

I have a client who has for the last four years been running a Red Hat 4.1.18 Server with absolutely zero problems. Yesterday somebody had a problem with one of the attached Windows PC's and some genius decided to reboot the server. By genius I mean idiot and by reboot I mean pull turn off the power to the box.

When they tried to reboot, they get a kernel panic. This is what the screen says;
Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
audit(1009912323.849:0): initialized
Red Hat nash version 4.1.18 starting
File descriptor 3 left open
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

The server runs the database for their entire POS system so they are now dead in the water. I'm stuck, I've never come across this before. What do I do to recover this?

Fedora Networking :: WPA2 W/ PSK Causing Kernel Panic?

Feb 3, 2009

I'm running Fedora 10 on a HP Compaq 6710b laptop. It is by far the best OS I have ever used and have no complaints, but I seem to be having some trouble with the wireless at work. The office has a single Cisco Aironet 1131 configured for WPA2 using AES with a PSK. The SSID is not broadcast. The mode is B/G mixed. My wireless card is a built-in Intel PRO 3945ABG, the driver is IWL3945 (auto configured during the OS install).

I use the Network Manager to manually add my SSID and select "WPA & WPA2 Personal" on the security tab and enter the PSK in the password field. After a few moments the wireless connects and appears to be working fine. About every 3-5 minutes while using the office network I get the "kernel error" dialog in the bottom right hand corner of my screen and the wireless drops connection. It re connects after about 30 seconds and appears to work fine until the next kernel error.

Fedora Hardware :: Kernel Panic During Installation - RAM Error

Sep 9, 2010

I have a system here that tends to have kernel panics during an linux installation, though I was able to perform a vista installation on the same hardware. Now I would like to ask what your suggestion for the cause of that problem is. Here a screenshot: [URL]

I suspect the hd to cause it:
-it is now over 7 years old
-smartctl displays over 16k read error and 0.5mio seek errors
(or are such high numbers normalfor that old disks?)
-the panic contains the string bad_area in the trace

But it might also be a RAM error, since the trace contains sth about page_fault and vista installs on the very same hdd and does not report any error messages (concerning the hardware, and I heard win doesn't complain about a bad RAM).

Fedora Hardware :: 13 & Asus P5Q Premium Kernel Panic?

Sep 21, 2010

Fedora 13 on Asus P5Q Premium, E7500 hangs after 10mins to 2 hour. After some trial and error, I found that the problem could be related to yum although it could be that it is only by running yum that I've been able to trace the problem. On runlevel 3 (to make sure it's not an X server problem), system hangs and prints the following message on the screen (copied it by hand, still have to figure out where to find it after system restart):

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00...0695
Ooops: 0000 [01] SMP
last sysfs file /sys/devices/virtual/block/md127/md/raid-disks


I have a hw RAID setup but the problem is the same, only the numbers are a bit different.

It is not a hw-related problem either because both the latest Suse and Kubuntu install without problems (although both seem to have problems in starting with RAID installed, normal disk is OK). Of course, I only have myself to blame because Asus says that this mb is compatible with FC8 - I haven't been able to test because my machine seems to have problems in booting from install DVD - but I suspect it is because that was the time this mb was launched and they haven't tried it on more recent Fedora distros.

Interestingly enough, the same problem comes with F12 and F11, didn't have energy to go further back. I've been using RedHat since ver 5.2. and would hate to give up following the path now. Fedora just stands out from the crowd so much that I can tolerate some inconveniences. This is just a bit too much.

Red Hat / Fedora :: FC12 Freeze - Lockup - Kernel Panic ?

Jan 31, 2010

I am having a problem with lockups on a new FC12 box (dual core 3 ghz, 4 gb memory,nvidia 8400gs). This happens reliably when replaying MythTV videos, but also randomly at other times using other apps (I suspect also boot but I can't be sure; it just occasionally stalls part way through the boot display).

Usually but not always this is accompanied by a kernel panic (caps lock + scroll lock lights flash on keyboard).

I did a core dump with kdump and it reports: Thread 1 (<main task>): Cannot access memory at address 0xffff880028025b70I am in the process of running memtest86+ right now. It's been through several passes without errors. I'm going to let it run some more, but if that is dependable it's looking like the RAM sticks are not the problem.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Server Rebooting No Kernel Panic Halt?

May 14, 2010

We have a server running CentOS 5 Linux 2.6.18-128.1.16.el5xen #1 SMP Tue Jun 30 06:39:23 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU Linux. We've seen at random times that the server will just reboot and nothing is logged in messages. I tried to enable kdump but was only able to get a 5.4 gig dump since our /var directory is set to 10GB. Here is the messages I see before and after the server restart. I had thought that when a kernel panics, it is supposed to halt the system and not reboot it. My /proc/sys/kernel/panic is set to 0. I can run an update but want to have some sort of idea what is causing the issue and if the update will fix anything.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Corrupted Libs: Kernel Panic Error

I can I restore the original libs? I'm running RHEL 2.6.9-42 on a Proliant DL585.
