RH7.1 Install -->Kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!

RH7.1 Install -->Kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!

Post by Randy Galbrait » Tue, 30 Oct 2001 11:30:59



I'm trying to install RH7.1 on a machine that was previously running
RH6.0 just fine.  However I don't get very far in the install before
running into a Kernel panic.  Does anyone have any information as to
what this might mean?

Any and all help gratefully appreciated. Thanks in advance.  Here is the
script of what happens...

RH7.1 Install -->Kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!

Well no one ever did follow up this, but thanks to Red Hat 30-day
support I did get answer and I thought I would let other folks know what
it was.  It turns out that attempts to install 7.1 on a machine that
boots from a scsi drive will sometimes result in this panic.

The procedure you need to follow is at the boot: prompt type "text
expert" then when prompted for a driver diskette answer "Yes", then
insert the diskette made from the image "drivers.img".  This then loads
a different scsi driver "tmscsim".  This procedure worked like a charm.

Of course one hopes Red Hat will one day fix the normal boot image so it
works with more scsi drives.  In the mean time hopefully this
information will be useful to someone out there.

1. aiee, killed interrupt handler - kernel panic

I was trying out the IP_Masquerade in Linux and found this nifty "feature" that
locked up the system and dumped this cute little message on my screen...

Aiee, killed interrupt handler
kfree of non-kmalloced memory:  00 1e d1 10, next=00 fc a7 5c, order = 0
task[0] swapper killed: unable to recover
kernel panic, trying to free swapper memory space
In swapper task - not syncing
(sorry if the format is messed up: if only there were a print-screen that is as
stable as the VC code seems to be)

   I'm still trying to figure out if the kernel felt pain when that happened-
it certainly screamed Aiee and then refused to do anything except let me look
at all the other VC's.  I can also fairly well re-produce this: all I have to
do is ftp from another host on my net using the new ip_masquerade in the 1.3.9
kernel.  I can get connect to a host (say, tsx-11) but when I actually try to
'get' something my 'router' dies this horrid death.
  I understand there are people who can actually read that register dump and
glean something usefull - is there anyone willing to translate for me?
  also: I have heard rumor of a kernel mailing-list... where is it?  ,
