Kernel Panic

Kernel Panic

Post by Christian Zahorski Philipp » Sun, 04 Apr 1999 04:00:00


I've got a problem on the instalatioin of my Linux Mandrake. When I try
installing it, it stops
in the middle and says :

    install exited anormaly -- received signal 11
    sending termination signals ... done
    sending kill signals ... done
    unmounting file systems ...
    you can know safely reboot your system.

Could someone help me please.


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

Anyone know why a kernel panic would not cause a reboot even though /proc/sys/kernel/panic is set to "1"?

This morning I had the following message on the console of a 2.2.14 box that had been sitting idle overnight:

When I pressed ENTER, I found that bash was still responding, though when I tried to run "top" everything froze until I pulled the plug on the box:

   total 3
   drwxr-x---    2 root     root         1024 Nov  7 23:56 .
   drwxr-xr-x   13 root     root         1024 Nov  7 19:56 ..
   -rw-------    1 root     root            5 Nov  7 23:56 test.txt

   Kernel panic: Free list corrupted

1) Anyone know why the kernel panic didn't cause a reboot?

2) Or maybe why something like this would even happen?
