Kernel panic

Kernel panic

Post by Nathavudh Chandhake » Fri, 08 Mar 1996 04:00:00

I have the problem after making new kernel.At the boot time it said
"Kernel panic :VFS unable to mount root on 3:02" It sound like lilo
can not find root file system.I use "make config" then "make dep"
and "make zlilo" and reboot.Is it right?
                Thank for help

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?
