scsi_free KERNAL PANIC

scsi_free KERNAL PANIC

Post by Setze » Sun, 06 Jun 1999 04:00:00

I am trying to install Red Hat 5.2 onto a COMPAQ 6150 Pentium Pro.

Auto Probe finds the CD-ROM and SCSI hard drive just fine.  Once the
packages begin to copy to the HD the systems freezes and returns the
following error message:

    scsi_free: Trying to free unused memory in swapper task - not syncing

The install program uses the scsi driver for the adapter:  AM53C974.

Any help with a fix or work-around would be greatly appreciated.

1. HELP : Kernal Panic when rebooting with new Kernal

I went through the steps to build a new kernal.  I copied the
old kernal to a *.old file and put the new kernal in the /boot
directory.  When I rebooted with lilo I got a kernal panic.
My first idea was to use the boot disk I made when I installed RedHat
4.1 to boot the system and then put the kernal back in place.
I booted from the floppy and typed rescue at the lilo prompt, but
it just went to the installation screens.  Can I save my system
or should I reinstall?
