Kernel panic after updating to kernel

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi all,

many users have reported "no problems" after updating to the latest kernel. Some users have reported issues like missing
WiFi or sound. The latter seem minor problems (not to those users,
however) in comparison with my experience: kernel panic at boot.

When rebooting after installing the new kernel, I only got as far as to
the point where it is said: "2 logical volume(s) in volume group
"VolGroup00" now active". After that kernel panics and either reboots or
freezes with screen full of: "<1>Unable to handle kernel paging request
at 0000000381281ac0 RIP:". 

Googling a bit revealed that similar problems have been around at least
since FC2 but I couldn't find any other reference to this latest kernel.
Neither did I find any real fix - other than reverting back to previous
kernel and/or installing a new kernel from rawhide.

For me this is a first; every kernel since FC4 has worked more or less
satisfactorily - and 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 still does. Therefore I'm not
going to bother you with details of my system (other than it is an AMD
Athlon64 using x86_64 packages).

FWIW, here's the list of my yesterday's updates (from yum.log):

Nevertheless, I'd appreciate any pointers in resolving the problem. When
installing the next kernel, I don't wish to be left with new kernel that
possibly won't work, and a kernel that definitely doesn't work.

TIA, Antti
