OpenSUSE Install :: Getting A Kernel Panic Error On Computer

Feb 13, 2010

It is my first try getting Linux on my pc which is an Acer Aspire Z5610. This is not the first time for me when I am getting an Kernel Panic error on this computer.

I looked up google hoping to find an answer and I found out that it may be my BIOS's fault. I currently have Windows 7 on this PC. I have a Phoenix BIOS and there is an update for it called "Bios Linux" on the official Acer support website.

OK, after this short introduction, that's the error:

I really hope to get support for this problem as I can not literally install any other OS to this PC than Windows 7 because they fail with Kernel Panic.

Tried other Linux Editions and even Mac OS Intel Edition and IAtkos V1 and V7 and they all give kernel panic.

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Panic On NetInstall?

Jan 3, 2011

I am trying to install openSUSE 11.3 on a Dell Dimension XPS D233. When the system loads the install after the second of six pieces it always locks up and the Caps Lock and Scroll Lock start flashing. This in my experience as a IT Specialist means a kernel panic has occurred. Does anyone know of the way to correct and/or bypass this issue?

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE 4.5 Update On 11.3 - Kernel Panic On Reboot

Sep 13, 2010

After reading this article openSUSE News - Forum Users Benefit from openSUSE KDE Repository I added that KDE repo to yast and switched all packages.

After rebooting it says (failsafe kernel configuration says the same):
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS:
Unable to mount root fs on unknown block (0,0)

And stops at this string: "[<c0203826>] kernel_thread_helper+0x6/0x10" and capslock light is blinking.

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Panic When Booting Live Gnome Or Dvd

Jul 4, 2011

I've currently have opensuse 11.3 installed on my system and I would like to do a new fresh install of opensuse 11.4. I therefore downloaded the DVD 11.4 x64 install. However, when booting the kernel from the DVD (that leads to the installation procedure) I obtain the following error message "unable to handle kernel paging request". The system then stops and I need to perform a hard reset to restart again. The same happens if I try do boot from the live gnome CD. Thus, I'm unable to install opensuse 11.4 at all due to this problem. A possible solution would be to perform a hot update (i.e. changing repositories in my 11.3 and perform a zypper refresh and zypper dup). But I'm a bit scared of doing this since this will install the problematic kernel. how to circumvent this problem ? Is there any updated version of the live CD? I've been able to install opensuse 11.4 x64 without problems at home. Now I'm trying to install it at work. The current kernel (at work) is:

General :: Getting Info On Kernel On Another Disk - Kernel Panic Error 6 Ext3

Feb 13, 2011

Dell laptop booting from a USB stick with a CentOS 5.5 minimum installation.

Uncompressing Linux...OK, booting the kernel.
Red Hat nash version 4.2.1.13 starting
sda: assuming drive cache: write through
sda: assuming drive cache: write through
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
switchroot: mount failed: 22
umount /initrd-dev failed: 2
Kernel panic - no syncing: Attempted to kill init!

1. Does minimum installation not drop on a kernel or initrd with ext3 support? I can't imagine that's true, but have to ask.

2. The USB stick is single partition ext3. Maybe there is some limitation specifically related to USB stick booting that requires boot to be FAT16 or FAT32? Except the CentOS 5.5 installer refuses to let me install on either FAT.

3. How can I do the equivalent of lsmod on a linux installation that will not boot? i.e. I have CentOS x86_64 running in VirtualBox, I can plug the USB stick in there, so how do I get information on the USB stick's kernel and initrd if I can't boot from it?

4. Is it possible to rebuild the i386 based initrd on this USB stick, when the computer is not booted from that stick, with a system that's x86_64 based?

System Info:
Dell Latitude i686 Laptop which has run CentOS 5.5 and Fedora 12,13,14 in the past, and boots from Fedora 14 Live CD transferred to a USB stick. So I know USB booting is possible on this machine, and this stick.

The process of creating the stick:

CentOS 5.5 i386 on a USB stick. Old Dell i686 laptop which has previously run CentOS 5.5 installed from DVD, and has successfully booted from this same USB stick holding transferred Fedora 12,13,14 Live CDs. CentOS 5.5 was installed onto the USB drive directly by the CentOS 5.5 DVD installer (running virtualized in VirtualBox 4.02 on Mac OS X 10.6.5.). No errors or complaints during installation.

For whatever reason, the installer did not do some things correctly. First Grub wasn't working correctly, I got that sorted out and have the Grub+CentOS splash screen, it finds vmlinuz and the initrd, and then I get a kernel panic.

Ext3 was built into the kernel and that's why I'm getting this message. I do not know how the installer would have dropped a kernel or initrd during instalation that that don't contain such a basic thing that obviously comes in linux kernel 2.6.18-89 EL.

General :: Tried To Install Bcmwl-kernel-source And Now Getting Kernel Panic

Jun 25, 2010

I am running an Hp Pavillion dv6000 with the Broadcom card that never seems to work for Linux. I recently talked with my friend who said he found a way to get it work.following his instructions I opened Synaptic and checked the package bmcwl-kernel-source to be installed.I went through the process of it all and it said it had install successfully. I restarted the computer and when I tried to enter my operating system I got this error "Kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown - block(8,1)"
I have previous versions of Linux on my computer so I can still get in to those if need be but I don't know how to undo what I did or why it isn't working for that matter. Does anyone have any ideas as to why I am getting this error and how I can fix it?

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 :: Debugging Memory Error 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,HDPVR,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 0xffff880028025b70

I am in the process of running memtest86+ right now, and it's been through several passes without errors. I know it needs to run more, but given the reliability of this problem with MythTV video playback I am wondering if the problem could be in the video card memory.

Does anyone know of a linux (or bootable) tester for video memory? All I am able to find are some things for windoze like this.

Also is there any way to track that address from the core dump back to a physical location?

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Panic Not Syncing / Relocation Error

Apr 15, 2010

I tried to upgrade Empathy from 2.28 to 2.30 via Synaptic but the upgrade always failed as there were some errors to do with the dependencies (libglib2.0* and others). The dependency issues were odd as it told me that Empathy wanted to install files that were older than the existing ones. So I decided to uninstall Empathy and all its dependencies, and re-install the whole (updated) package and it's dependencies from scratch via Synaptic. After the install, Ubuntu told me that there were broken packages and Update Manager kept on popping up asking me to run a partial upgrade to fix these broken packages. Well, the partial upgrade also failed (due to the same dependency issues , I suspect) so I decided that I'll run a full system update (as Update Manager had being bugging me prior to my failed Empathy upgrade). 486 Mb later, Ubuntu no longer wants to boot - it freezes on the splash screen.

When I start it in recovery mode, it spews out the various processes being loaded. Trying to run earlier kernels (2.6.31-19 / 17 / 14) from GRUB, in both normal mode and recovery mode does not seem to help.I am running Ubuntu 9.10, kernel 2.6.31-20-generic.

a) Is the problem to do with the kernel - did the update try to update the kernel as I note that there is a new stable release (2.6.33-2)? However, GRUB still indicates that the kernel is 2.6.31-20.
b) Would updating the kernel to 2.6.33-2 help? If so, how do I do this?
c) Is the problem, as I suspect, to do with the libglib* files? If so, how do I fix it?

General :: ACPI Error & Kernel Panic On Boot - Fedora 12

However, I reinstalled Fedora using a simple single drive setup (left the second drive without any partition), and the same error was returned. Is this an ACPI issue with this particular motherboard/BIOS? Any ideas for how I can fix this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub - Ran An Update And On Reboot Get A Kernel Panic Error

Mar 24, 2011

I have a new acer machine which runs fine on 10.10 mythbuntu desktop livecd. Install seemed fine.

Then I ran an update and on reboot I get a kernel panic error. Research on this reveals it as a very deep subject which can consume many hours, so I opted to reinstall.

This time with ubuntu 10.10. I've tried different CDs, liveusb. Same errors.

So, the question is this - where do I concentrate my efforts - somewhere ubuntu doesn't like this machine, or grub. Does a reinstall overwrite the grub install too? Or do I have a bogus grub install I need to purge before I will get anywhere.

Fedora Installation :: Error - Kernel Panic - Not Syncing: DMAR Hardware Is Malfunctioning

Mar 26, 2010

i study computational systems engineering.. and in my school (itlp) we've got fedora 12 installed in some of the computers.. and we use it to learn network administration and security. the reason of this message.. is that i want to install fedora 12 in my notebook (dv4-1525la vu068la).. but an error keeps poping up.. the error is the next one..

DMAR: No ATSR found
DRDH: handling fault status reg f0003d63
Kernel panic - not syncing: DMAR hardware is malfunctioning

and though i have looked in bugzilla.. there is no help for me there.. they say.. "press tab in the welcome bootscreen when you are about to select whether to install or restore an existing system and write intel_iommu=off and press enter" but that does not really helps.. it just does the same.. in some blogs they say "upgrade your bios".. but i say.. then why i can not install the olders distributions with my "old" bios.

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...?
