Strange smp error message with 2.1.111

Post by Andreas Gutzwill » Tue, 28 Jul 1998 04:00:00



I installed the 2.1.111 SMP Kernel on my 2 Pentium 166MMX PC. Now I have this
error message when I boot the system:

Jul 27 18:32:05 hippo kernel: VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.
Jul 27 18:32:05 hippo kernel: Freeing unused kernel memory: 40k freed
Jul 27 18:32:05 hippo kernel: stuck on smp_invalidate_needed IPI wait (CPU#1)
Jul 27 18:32:05 hippo last message repeated 18 times
Jul 27 18:32:05 hippo kernel: Adding Swap: 130748k swap-space (priority -1)

I saw this error a first time with the 2.1.110 kernel.
What is the meaning of this error?

Regards
Andy

I saw similar results with 2.1.111 and my SMP; the boot stalled at the
same point as yours (ctl-alt-del shut down ok) -- The 112pre2 patch from
www.linux.org corrected the problem.

Me, too.  2.1.110 printed it once and then continued on it's merry
way.  Now, 2.1.111 says it's stuck on CPU#0 and prints the message ad
nauseum and never finishes the boot.  I'm running an ASUS
P/I-P65UP5/200-P6 with dual PPro 200's.

Quote:> What is the meaning of this error?

It looks like the kernel is spinning waiting for the APIC to deliver
the IPI (or so says arch/i386/kernel/smp.c).

I can't check until I get back to the office tomorrow night, but I
definitely didn't get a hang with 2.1.111, TYAN Tomcat IV(?), dual
166MMX, 128MB. In fact the machine is sitting ready as a fallback router
because I've been having problems with one router and wanted another
ready. I beat it over the weekend, then shut down.

However... I did see a message about disabling DMA on the IDE drive at
boot time, although I couldn't ever get it to happen again. I don't have
any reason to believe this is related.

I also saw this this past weekend as I built the 2.1.111 SMP kernel for a dual
PPro system. I am also interested in knowing what is happening.

Strange smp error message with 2.1.111

When I compiled the same kernel on my Dual P166 and I got a total kernel panic saying that it could not synchronize the cpus. The changes indicate that there was some work done to the SMP code. Maybe that is why we are getting these errors now.

1. strange syslog messages --> char-major-111

Does anyone know what this means:

In my syslog (/var/log/messages) over and over I get lines like this:

Jan  4 11:08:35 garage modprobe: can't locate module char-major-111
Jan  4 11:12:54 garage last message repeated 3 times
Jan  4 11:13:55 garage last message repeated 21 times
Jan  4 11:15:42 garage last message repeated 57 times
Jan  4 11:16:44 garage last message repeated 15 times
Jan  4 11:17:47 garage last message repeated 9 times
Jan  4 11:31:53 garage last message repeated 3 times
Jan  4 11:34:18 garage last message repeated 6 times
Jan  4 11:36:40 garage last message repeated 9 times
Jan  4 11:36:40 garage last message repeated 2 times

Similarly, I also get:
Jan  4 10:00:16 garage modprobe: can't locate module char-major-116
Jan  4 10:03:16 garage modprobe: can't locate module char-major-116
Jan  4 10:06:16 garage modprobe: can't locate module char-major-116
Jan  4 10:09:17 garage modprobe: can't locate module char-major-116
Jan  4 10:12:17 garage modprobe: can't locate module char-major-116
Jan  4 10:15:17 garage modprobe: can't locate module char-major-116
Jan  4 10:18:18 garage modprobe: can't locate module char-major-116
Jan  4 10:21:18 garage modprobe: can't locate module char-major-116
Jan  4 10:24:18 garage modprobe: can't locate module char-major-116

Here's the specs:

System:
        PII 266, 64MB, 4.3G IDE
        RedHat 5.2 (Apollo) plus (nearly) all updates
        Linux kernel 2.0.36
        Running httpd, nfs, and samba for about 40 users.
        Also acting as a masquerading IP-gateway (using ipfwadm)

/etc/conf.modules:
        alias eth0 3c59x

output of 'lsmod':
        Module         Pages    Used by
        ncpfs              6            1
        ip_masq_ftp        1            0
        3c59x              5            2 (autoclean)
        ipx                3            4 (autoclean)

Any ideas of where this is coming from would be helpful.  Please
respond via email.

Thanks,

Slugg
