OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Xen Kernel Aacraid Drive Panics With Adaptec ServeRAID 8k-l

Mar 28, 2011

I have loaded openSuSE 11.4 on an IBM x3400 box with an Adaptec ServeRAID 8k-l SAS harddisk adapter. openSuSE 11.1 was previously loaded on this box and was using XEN kernels.) The default "desktop" kernel boots and operates correctly. I use this machine to run other XEN virtual machines to run different versions or our companies printer controller application. When I attempt to boot the xen kernel, the kernel cannot locate the root partition (or any other partition) on the hard disk. Here are a few lines of kernel output:

OpenSUSE Install :: Update To 11.3 And Getting Kernel Panics Randomly

Jul 22, 2010

Since the update to 11.3 i'm getting kernel panics randomly. Because the X server freezes and I can only force an "unexpected reboot", there is not much information I have. I installed kdump and activated it with the Yast module. I'm collecting dump files, now. But I'm not sure what to do with does files.

CentOS 5 :: Install DVD Starts And Then Kernel Panics

Apr 29, 2009

I'm trying to use and old Dell Dimension 2350 workstation with 1GB of RAM and a 200GB drive as a home server. I boot the CentOS 5.3 install DVD, get to the splash screen and hit ENTER to start the install. The install routine starts and then kernel panics with a very long trace I can't make sense of. I've used the DVD for other installs so I know the media is good.Are there any known quirks to installing linux on a Dimension 2350? Maybe some kernel line parameters like no acpi?? As a test, I took an Ubuntu server cd, and the install actually completed but on reboot it kernel panicked with a similar long trace error. Obviously this is most likely a hardware issue.

Fedora Installation :: Kernel Panics On Both LiveCD And Install DVD

Feb 23, 2010

I've been trying to install fedora 12 on my laptop, however, I've been running into kernel panics on both the live cd and the install dvd. I'm using an HP HDX16 with an Intel Core Two Duo T9400 @ 2.53ghz, and a Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT. Dunno if any other hardware might be involved. Here's the text I get on my screen:

Fedora Installation :: F12 Clean Install Stopped - Kernel Panics

The machine has completed more than 30 hours of HD cleaning with DBAN (overwrites the HD). It used to be able to run F9 or Ubuntu 8.04 but always returned kernel panic during other distro installation attempts. Why after a complete HD clean though?

CentOS 5 :: Install, Recurring Kernel Panics Crashing System?

Dec 27, 2009

Recently switched my home server from Gentoo to CentOS and have been getting kernel panics consistently since I made the server "live". The machine was built with all new hardware. I'll post relevant configuration info and picture of the kernel panic below. So far all kernel panics have been with kernel "2.6.18-164.9.1.el5.centos.plus", right now I am testing with the kernel listed below to see if it does the same thing (2.6.18-164.9.1.el5).

justin@empire justin $ uname -rmi
2.6.18-164.9.1.el5 x86_64 x86_64
justin@empire justin $ rpm -qa |grep kernel |sort
kernel-2.6.18-164.6.1.el5

Ubuntu :: Getting Kernel Panics While Booting From LiveCD / USB

Feb 17, 2011

I just built a computer with these specs:
Asus P7P55D-E Pro Mother Board
2 x 4gb GSkill RipJaw 1333
Intel Core i5-760 cpu
MSI nVidia GeFore GTX-460 Video Card

When I try to boot from a live CD/USB I always get some sort of kernel panic, most times about USB controllers and other times about cpu_idle. I have pictures of these that I can post but nothing from any logs because this is happening even before I install. I have left memtest running over night for 11 hours and had no problems, I have tried to boot with only one stick of memory, I have changed the video card to a GeForce 8800 and I have tried everything on a different motherboard and still no luck. Would I wrong to say that there is a problem with the CPU and should I return it? My only problem with all of this is that Windows installs perfectly fine on the computer with zero problems...weird.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Panics In Natty All The Time?

May 10, 2011

I have been a happy Ubuntu and other distros user from 2007 to now. Had my old 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu Studio actually) that I really felt was time to upgrade. Then I downloaded the ISO image for 11.04 Natty Narwhal past 4 day ago. It gave me an option to install on my old 7.10, upgrading it, then I chose that one not to have to lose my data.

At the very end of the installation (when downloading several packages from the net) I got a kernel panic.
After that I reinstalled from zero wiping the whole partition, with the same results. It only worked when I disconnected the net cable so it wouldn't download anything during install. Then I could run the 11.04, but kept getting kernel panics, and after some testings (I thought it was the nvidia video drivers at first) I think it happens after some ammount of network traffic happens.

Memtest went normal, I tried logging with no-effects and I tried some solutions from forums with no results. The pc can be on and working for hours, but after I start surfing the web for some time, I get a freeze. Sometimes Caps Lock and Scroll Lock leds are flashing, and sometimes just freezes to simply become unresponsive. When it was during the installation I got a message saying it would pop out into console because panic occured and then froze. Anyway I always have to press the reset button.

I would like to be sure if I have some of my hardware broken or if the newest kernel is still green on some hardware support; maybe network. I'd also like to know if I can install older versions of the kernel; I think that should fix the problem because other distros worked perfectly here before. I also heard about some kernel-image-pae being different from the ordinary kernel image. Could it help if I change that package? I'm waiting to install 11.04 in my wife's computer also but of course I don't want to bring any problems on her! My net card is Nvidia Nforce and my processor is AMD Athlon II X2 with a GForce 9400 for video card.

General :: App Segfaults Every LiveCD/DVD Kernel Panics?

Jan 23, 2011

My friend's PC recently started acting up. He had me install Sabayon on it and everything was fine until a few days ago. Every app I try to run after the PC boots results in a segmentation fault. I figured maybe something was wrong with the HDD, so I tried to boot from a DSL liveCD to run fsck, but it wouldn't boot; it freezes right away. I then tried the Sabayon LiveDVD and got a kernel panic.Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? I am completely clueless; I've never had anything like this happen before.

General :: Kernel Panics - RAID Or XFS Related?

Jun 21, 2010

After building a new system I have been getting kernel panics randomly. I have been able to look at /var/log/messages and determine that either my RAID card, XFS, or something along those lines is causing the problem. It has now gotten bad enough that any heavy use of the RAID will cause it to panic and die.

There is one large file on this that I need which is not on my backups but when I try to get it off, the transfer will cause a kernel panic within minutes. What is causing the panic? Is there any way to resolve it? The RAID card is an LSI SAS3081E-R and I am using the built in drivers/modules within Ubuntu 10.04 x64 (pretty sure the kernel itself has the driver included). There is source available for the driver from LSI's site but I'm not sure if that will solve the problem and in addition to that, I can't figure out how to compile and install it. It has a Makefile already but make just complains "no targets".

Code:
Jun 21 13:00:22 cyan kernel: [ 706.206498] ffff88019652daf8 ffff88018ff61698 ffff8801935ddd50 ffffea00038f6650

CentOS 5 :: Random Kernel Panics / Correct It?

Jul 8, 2009

I'm running CentOS 5.3 x86_64 on my laptop (dell vostro 1400, core2duo, 3GB RAM, intel 3945ABG wireless, nvidia video and LAN). The problem is that some times (like 15-20% of times) I shutdown the laptop, I get a kernel panic related always to the wireless kernel module (I haven't been able to get screenshot or anything). I'm using the latest centosplus kernel. I never get these panics with the standard CentOS kernel, however the standard kernel doesn't light the wireless led, and that annoys me a lot. Therefore I'm forced to use centosplus kernel. The question is not how to solve this (i know I've not given enough details) but what to do to diagnose better the cause of the panic and then correct it.

Ubuntu Networking :: 64 Bit Bcm4311 Wireless Random Kernel Panics?

Sep 22, 2010

I have this weird issue which only appears when I am using 64 bit Ubuntu. Every now and then my laptop seems to go into a kernel panic (system unresponsive, numlock and scrollock lights flash repetitively) only when I am using the broadcom wireless. I can connect to my wireless router and use the internet and local network, but eventually, kablamo, crash, bang, boom. The only way out of the crash is to power off completely. After repowering, the wireless network is fine until the next crash. There does not seem to be a pattern or time period to cause this crash either. I have purged network manager(which I couldn't get to use my wireless) and am using wicd, which allows me to connect wirelessly.

Here is the details of my system:

Dell inspiron 1520
lspci (snipped)
0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01)

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox Started To Crash Randomly And Led To Kernel Panics

Aug 2, 2011

A while ago, when I was using Maverick, Firefox started to crash randomly and led to kernel panics.

So I upgraded to Natty (clean install) and Firefox there too crashed.

Then I was getting graphics and make problems.

Today I tried to install Fedora 15. It first boots to a Live desktop that warned me that my hard drive had 65000+ bad sectors. Sixty-five thousand.

So I got a new one. A WD Scorpio Black, 750GB 7200RPM with Advanced Format.

Again I boot into Fedora 15. OK, no bad sectors. I tried to run Disk Utility Self Tests but it constantly crashed. Fedora warns you about this.

In the Live session, I opened Firefox. It also crashed just like back in Ubuntu. Then the screen flashes black and got warnings after warnings that a kernel module has crashed.

So I took out my old Maverick installation CD and first tried a Live session. However, Disk Utility told me that SMART is not supported while on Fedora, it was.

So I tried to install. But soon after that, I got a warning that the installer has crashed because a file copied to the disk did not match the file on CD. Right now I am in the Maverick Live session.

Ubuntu Servers :: Update The Drive For Adaptec Raid Controller?

Sep 4, 2010

I was trying to update the drive for my adaptec raid controller. Unfortunately, Adaptec only provides RPM packages. So I converted the package using alien. After dpkg install, I then tried using dkms to build the module:

Code:
root@atulsatom# dkms add -m aacraid -v 1.1.5.26400
Adding driver was successful, but I got some error during the build
Code:
root@atulsatom# dkms build -m aacraid -v 1.1.5.26400
Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel. Skipping.

Hardware :: Adaptec 39160 Scsi Fails To Detect Seagate Drive

Dec 4, 2010

just bought an adaptec 39160 PCI scsi controller and 34Gb drive and installed it on my computer.When i Booted it up a utility thing ran which said 'detecting array' and it found the drive and its size etc. it didn't go any further to allow my system to boot, so I rebooted and pressed CTRL + A to enter the adaptec scsi config. I changed something in there to make the disk non bootable (i Think) and rebooted the system.

It now hangs at :

'Detecting Array .....'

and does not show the drive details or the CTRL + A option to enter the utilities. So the only option I have had is to remove the adaptec controller ( and the system boots fine) the mother board is an Abit an8 ultra - probably about 4 years old and cpu is amd 64 I guess i have broken it and my remedy would be to reset the default options on the adaptec controller, but you can probably guess I have v. limited knowledge and have not used scsi before.

Hardware :: Ata_piix Timeout On Flagstone SATA / Repeating Error Until Kernel Eventually "panics"?

When trying to install RHEL 5.4 on a Flagstone SATA (encrypted hard disk), linux timeouts while loading the ata_piix module.

The above message is repeated several times until the kernel eventually "panics".If I use a non-encrypted SATA (Maxtor, Fujitsu, etc), the install works. It only fails with Flagstone SATA encrypted hard disks.

Hardware :: CentOS 5 Install Does Not Find HDs On Adaptec AHA-2940AU / Get That?

Jan 24, 2009

All installs attempts below are from CD

My hardware is
Tyan 1834 (VIA Chipset) dual P-III and 512 MB
Adaptec AHA-2940AU SCSI card with 3 Seagate drives
ATI Rage 128 AGP Video card

Tried to install CentOS 5 but did not locate any hard drives
(No drives listed at Partition Step)

Was able to install CentOS 4.4 and it located ATI card, and installed successfully and runs.

However, trying to upgrade to CentOS, also fails and does not find any hard drives (same error)
(also say "no video found, assuming headless" - but output still shown to screen - using 'linux text' install)

http://www.adaptec.com/en-US/_common/linux/ - lists Linux "supported distributions" including
CentOS 4.0/4.2/4.3 - but no mention of CentOS 5 (or could that page be too old?)

Want to use as test platform for custom software development, but it must match existing production machine CentOS 5 platform...
(Cent OS 4 could introduce a significant difference)

How can I roll back to the older kernel? Yast does only offer the recent kernel.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 From DVD - Load Kernel Operation Hangs At 97% (using Both Normal And Safe Kernel)

Feb 23, 2010

I am an experienced Linux admin and have been using SuSE for many years. My development machine has had every version of SuSE since '02 and although it is a little old, is in good working order. (AMD
2400, 2 gig RAM, 160 Gig IDE disks - SuSE on disk 2) (OpenSuSE 11.1 with the latest kernel works perfectly. This install is on a spare HDD prior to doing a full install on my usual HDD.)

When I try to install SuSE 11.2 from DVD, the load kernel operation hangs at 97% (using both normal and safe kernel), however, I can install from live CD without any problem. I have tried the same DVD on a few "older" machines and had the same problem. I initially thought it was the actual DVD but re-burning has the same problem. I have also tried another DVD writer - same problem.

OpenSUSE Install :: Time Wrong In XEN Kernel But Right In Desktop Kernel?

Feb 11, 2010

I have a system running openSUSE 11.2 with Desktop and XEN kernel, as well as Windows 7 (not by choice though...). I have noticed a strange time issue, with Windows 7 and the desktop kernel the time is correct (like for example now: 1:32 PM) but in the XEN kernel it is ahead several hours (6:32 PM). If it was an issue between openSUSE and windows then I would think that it is a problem with the system clock but I don't know what would cause a time issue between kernels like that.

OpenSUSE Install :: Differences Between Kernel Default And Kernel Desktop?

Jul 21, 2010

differences between Kernel Default and Kernel Desktop? I've found some past threads like this link and this other link, and some other google info, which suggest the only difference would be the io scheduler. Also, I see the default grub choice is "Desktop" and not "Default", so I take this as a suggestion to prefer one over the other.

However, my broadcom 4312 wireless only works on the "default" and not on the "desktop" kernel, so I guess there must be other differences. I just want to evaluate which one is the less long-term risk option to go.
