General protection error .... HELP!!!!A

Post by Prasanna Kumar Mishr » Sat, 20 Mar 1999 04:00:00



Hello!

I am experiencing a very frustrating problem with linux. When I give any
shell command I get a error message like the one given below. This type of
message comes not for any single command but comes randomly. If I give the
same command next time sometimes it comes and sometimes it does not.
Here goes the meassage when i gave "ls -l|less" command. I am also sending
one more as attachment.

similiar error also came while tried other commands.

I am in a very confused state. I am having 413MB partition for linux. 34MB
is left for swapping. This leaves me with 376MB disk space. I have loaded
upto 335MB of packages. CPU is Cyrix Instaed 6x80 and use Intel
motherboard (unable to recall the model).

Thanks in advance for sending me the solution.

1. General Protection error?

Hoping not to waste bandwidth, can someone tell me how to fix general
protection errors when I have just set the boot image to find root on the
hard drive?  

My setup:  386-25, ST01 SCSI controller, ST296N drive.  40MB Linux partition.
I'm trying to boot bootimage.96a.  When booting off floppy it works just great
and seems to like my system.  (Once I figured out how to format the proper
partition)  

When booting off the hard drive, I get all the way to the point when the login
prompt is given, and I get a general protection error 0000.  After that,
everytime I try to log in, it happens again, and I'm dropped out to the login
prompt again.

Thanks in advance all.
