Kernel Panic on a bi-processor

Kernel Panic on a bi-processor

Post by Sergi » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I've tried to install many Linux's distribution on a PC with two processor
(Salckware 7.0, Mandrake, Corel , RedHat 6.2, Suse6.4), but all of them,
when booting, give me this message:

<register and memory dump>
Attempted killing the idle task

If I boot with the monoprocessor kernel everything goes right.
What's the problem?

Thank you for helping me.

PS: sorry for my bad English :)


1. run a job on both processors of a bi-processor xeon

Hi everybody,
I want to run a job on both processors of a bi-processor xeon
when I simply run the job like this:
it runs only on one processor of 1.7Ghz. This takes a long time untill
the job is done!
Is there any simple bash command to do so ? or do I need an additional
parallelisation software like PVM, OpenMP or MPI ?

8. Q:Is there a linux on P-Pro 200 Bi-processor Box?

9. This is disconcerting: System panic: panic (cpu 0): Processor Machine Check

10. convert kernel from dual processor to single processor

11. panic not rebooting even though /proc/sys/kernel/panic=1?
