General :: PClinuxOS Hangs On Boot - Kernal Panic- Not Syncing - Attempted To Kill Init

Jun 7, 2010

I recently installed new hard drive and cloned old hard drive software onto it. The bootloader installs either linux or other operating system. Ever since the cloning, boot hangs. Words in the thread title are the last to appear before everything grinds to a halt. Just before the kernal panic message appears, "Initrd finished" is last line. Will have to try booting again to find more info before this.

Ubuntu Installation :: Error - Kernel Panic - Not Syncing: Attempted To Kill Init

Jun 8, 2011

Today I was upgrading my netbook with Ubuntu 10.10 on it to 11.04 via the Update Manager. I got a few errors and the Update Manager seemed like it wasn't continuing, so decided to exit it. It didn't respond so after a while I decided to restart the netbook. However the on/off/standby/restart, etc. button in the top right wasn't responding either, so I decided to force a shutdown with the power button on my netbook. Now Ubuntu doesn't start up, and gives me an error along the lines of:

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! Pid: 1, comm: init Not tainted 2.6.35-28-generic #50-Ubuntu Now could I in some way repair my Ubuntu installation while still keeping the files I already have on my computer? Maybe via booting from a flash drive or something...?

Red Hat :: Kernel Panic Not Syncing Kill INIT - No Volume Groups Found

Mar 20, 2011

I just imaged my RHEL 4 system that was running on a Dell Poweredge 2950 server using Acronis software and I restored the image to a VmWare virtual machine.

Dell Poweredge 2950 - RAID 5
VmWare - using ESX 4.0
OS - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 ES Update 5 x64
kernel - 2.6.9-55.0.9.ELsmp

I'm getting the following when I try to boot on the new virtual machine. I'm thinking it has to do with the fact that it's new hardware and it's having trouble either finding the right drivers or pointing to the correct place.

"No Volume Groups found
Volume Group "Volgroup00" not found
ERROR: /bin/lvm exited abnormally! (pid505)
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
switchroot: mount failed: 22
umount /initrd/dev failed: 2

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!"
I was able to boot into Linux rescue mode using the boot CD. Then I typed:
#chroot /mnt/sysimage

Here's all the info from the commands I typed:
#ldd /bin/bash
libtermcap.so.2 => /lib64/libtermcap.so.2
libdl.so.2 => /lib64/libdl.so.2
libc.so.6 => /lib64/tls/libc.so.6
/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2
#uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.9-89.EL x86_64
#df -h ....

I've tried the following:
1. mkinitrd -v -f /boot/initrd-2.6.9-55.0.9.EL.img 2.6.9-55.0.9.EL
2. modified the device.map to point to /dev/sda3
3. changed the SCSI controller in Vmware to use BusLogic instead of LSI Logic. (didn't work because I'm running 64 bit.. gave me an error message)
4. grub-install --recheck /dev/sda
5. tried booting to differerent OS versions (i.e. 2.6.9-55.0.6, etc.). I tried all of the versions listed in the boot menu.
None of these worked.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Panic Not Syncing Attempted To Kill The Idle Task Wubi Ubuntu Install

Dec 13, 2010

-Linux / Ubuntu.
-I am running Windows Vista

I just downloaded Wubi - To install Ubuntu on my computer. (Whether it's called Dual boot or running Ubuntu inside of Windows Vista I do not know.) Everything went fine, got a very easy little screen to ask what partition I wanted to install it on and how much size, etcetera, the download went fine, blablabla.

Problem: It asks me to reboot (This is the first reboot I got.), I say yes, it reboots, I get the booting screen where I get to pick between Windows and Ubuntu, I pick Ubuntu, and it gives me this 'error'.

Among other things it reads:

After this nothing happens - I waited about 25 minutes.

I manually turned off my computer - started it up again - once again chose Ubuntu and the same problem occured.

1. I looked around the Ubuntu folder inside my C a little, it shows the iso file as Ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-amd64

2. Some other forum advised people with this problem to check their RAM, so I unplugged both, cleaned and switched them. (I have 2 GB ram total.) This didn't work. Same problem still occurs.

General :: Initramfs - Attempted To Kill Init ?

Nov 10, 2010

For a special purpose I needed a initramfs - that didn't work. So I reduced the initramfs setup to the simplest.

Mount the root and switch_root into it. But that didn't work either.

If I go with the init-script for the initramfs I posted below the system prints out the switch_root usage-text from busybox. But the syntax is right, ain't it?

When I use chroot instead of switch_root then it prints the usage-text of init before the kernel panic.

If I try with "/sbin/init 5" then, after a while the system reports "init: timeout opening/writing control channel /dev/initctl".

In the other cases I get the following error messages before the system hangs: "Kernel Panic", "Attempted to kill init", "init not tainted"

(With the init script below there is a error saying:"sh: can't access tty; job control turned off". I know why it's there - but don't know if it is connected to this problem.)

This information may be important:
- The machine boots from a usb-harddisk
- /sbin/init on the new root is available
- the system on newroot is sane and runs perfect standalone (without initramfs)
- the system on newroot uses baselayout-2 with openrc
- busybox is built as static binary
- busybox version is v1.15.3

Here is the relevant data:

My uname -a on that machine:

Content of the initramfs:

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.

Quote:

Here is how the end of the kernelcomplie look like.

Quote:

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

Quote:

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

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

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernal Panic - Not Syncing: VFS: Unable To Mount Root Fs On Unknown-block(0,0)

May 16, 2010

System:

Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid; clean install; 32bit

When booting, I can choose 2 from 2 options (ignoring recovery mode):

- Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-22-generic
- Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-21-generic

(and then Windows Vista and Ubuntu 9.10 a couple of times) The newer version appeared with an update from Ubuntu a couple of days after installation. When booting from the first I get the following message:

Code:

Kernal panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0) When booting from the second, Ubuntu loads without a problem.

Ubuntu :: Screen Reads 1.414518 Kernal Panic-not Syncing: Vfs: Unable To Mount Root Fs On Unknown - Block (8,2)

Mar 23, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu now for 4 years and apart from getting the wireless card working on this laptop it has worked perfectly until now. I just loaded the updates and now problems, after switching on and selecting Ubuntu the next screen gives options

2.6.31-20 generic
2.6.31-20 recovery mode
down to
2.6.31-16 generic

if I hit return or let 20 load the next screen reads 1.414518 Kernal panic-not syncing :vfs : unable to mount root fs on unknown - block (8,2) Caps light starts flashing and only way out is to power down. If I select 20 recovery I get a screen full of info and then caps light flashing and only way out is the power button, if I select 19 it loads and works as normal. Is there a simple way to get it auto loading again as the rest of the family use this and are now Ubuntu converts and will not realise whats going on and will reluctantly load up windows.......

Ubuntu :: Kernal Panic On Boot

Nov 20, 2010

So I just installed the new linux kernel ( version 26) . On reboot there is a kernel panic with something like not able to mount root fs on 0,0. The older kernel works fine though. And btw while installing the kernel it did complain about not sufficiant space in /boot. I have got this message earlier, so I removed one of the oldest kernels. and i recently there has been package failure during installation of other packages. And one last thing, i noted that during the removal of the older kernel, there were lines in the terminal suggesting that kernel-26 had not been configured properly, so it tried to configure kernel-25 which also apparently failed.

CentOS 5 :: Kernel Panic Not Syncing No Init After Fresh Install Centos 5.3 Iscsi?

Jul 9, 2009

The first server I installed installed fine. The second server, installed with the same config, went to "kernel panic not syncing no init found try passing init= option in kernel" error. I tried reinstalling but it keeps going to that error after install reboot. The storage is ISCSI connected via Intel Server Adapter, which allows it to boot from ISCSI. Not sure if that's the cause for the problem, but the first server is connected to the same ISCSI and installed just fine.

Is there a way that I can make sure ISCSI module installs during installation? Although I think it is installed since it's able to copy the files and setup /dev/sda. I just wana make sure that it installs during setup.

General :: Boot Disk - Returns Kernel Panic - Not Syncing Cpu Context Corrupt

Mar 6, 2010

I am a Windows 7 user. I have two machines a laptop & a new bench top. Both machines run & boot Windows 7 very well. I use a very good program to clone my Hard Drive to an external USB drive. called Macrium Reflect. It is free and is a dream to use & very fast. This program creates a Linux based boot disk, which will allow you to find a backup clone file on an external drive to restore your hard drive. It works a treat on my laptop & has saved my bacon many times when I have messed things up fiddling with the registry etc.

The problem I am having is that my new desktop will not boot from the start up CD & returns the error kernel panic,not syncing cpu context corrupt. & then just tries to reboot again. I don't know what this problem relates to whether it is the computer hardware or the Linux CD or both. My laptop with the same OS does not have a problem, It is an Acer Aspire 5920G with 1.6ghz Intel dual core processor & 2gig Ram. The bench top has an Intel Dual core 3.3ghz processor, Zotac mother board & 4gig of Ram. both machines are running 32 bit OS.

I have browsed through the posts on this forum with people having the same error at boot, but as I am not using Linux & only using a boot CD I didn't think it appropriate to but into their threads. So I am hoping if some one can tell me is this a hardware issue or a Linux/New dual core CPU/ or Bios/Mother board issue. If it is a Linux issue then my Laptop surely would not boot would it? My bench top is only a week old and guaranteed, should I be sending it from Adelaide back to Sydney(purchased online from MWave) for fault inspection? or just take to a local Technician for a diagnosis. I am not having any hardware problem running Windows 7.

General :: Kill XServer (Init 3 / 5 Does Not Work)

Feb 23, 2011

I'm running Linux Mint 10, although I've had this same issue with other variants of Linux. I've been told/found while researching that if the X server hangs or otherwise errors, one can drop to a root prompt, usually at another tty, and execute init 3 (to drop to single user mode) and then init 5 to return to the default, graphical session. Needless to say, I've tried this before in multiple configurations on multiple machines to no avail.

The only feedback I receive form executing those two commands is a listing of VMWare services (from a kernel module) that are stopped and then restarted. If I run startx (either before or after init 3), then I am told that the xserver is still running and that I should remove /tmp/.X0-lock. Having tried that, it removes that error message, but claims that the xserver cannot be attached as another instance is running. How do I kill the xserver completely? Can I killall some process name?

General :: Kernel Panic - Not Syncing: VFS : Unable To Mount Roof Fs On Unknown-block Error?

Apr 21, 2010

I downloaded the ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso file from the website, extracted it, and ran the Wbiu.exe file - it prompted to get my info and then restart. Upon restarting, I then had the choice to run Windows or Ubuntu, and I've been running Ubuntu ever since.

I ran into some speed-bumps. Upon entering the Ubuntu option at my start-up prompt, I go to another prompt asking me to choose from: Ubuntu, linux 2.6.31-20 Generic Ubuntu, linux 2.6.31.20 Recovery mode Ubuntu, linux 2.6.31-14 Generic Ubuntu, linux 2.6.31-14 Recovery mode Windows 7 installer Windows Vista installer
I've been choosing the very first one, the 31-20 generic, but just this morning after downloading some programs from the Synaptic and transferring a few Gbs of music, I received this error prompt: Code: [2.879604] Kernel panic -- not syncing: VFS : Unable to mount roof fs on unknown--block (8,2) After that, I've been running the 2.6.31-14 generic installer. I have no idea what any of this means and I've spent time crawling through threads trying to figure it out. I mean, it still WORKS but I just help but think I've done something very wrong. ALERT: SUDO PASSWORD QUESTION

I hope the cautionary sign above has dispelled any annoyed gurus who have answered this question dozens of times before. I've crawled through my fair share of threads concerning this, the best corollary being the following: forum/linux-newbie/157773-solved-sudo-password-errors-usb-internet-issues.html; which, strangely enough, was never really solved. Like the user in that thread, when I access the terminal and type in a command, the next line invariably states "[sudo] password for jacob' -- when I hit enter and type in the long list of possibilities I've read (read: sudo, su, su root, su passwd, sudo passwd, sudo root, et al.), alas, nothing happens but the same statement.
