Kernel panic in 2.2.18 and SMP

Kernel panic in 2.2.18 and SMP

Post by Ricardo Gall » Mon, 12 Mar 2001 21:50:03

I just upgraded from 2.2.16 to 2.2.18 in a production machine. The machine
dies after few minutes with the following error message (it's not complete,
the machine was rebooted by a colleague of mine):

Kernel panic
Context corruption at bank 0

The motherboard is a RD440LX DP, with adapted 2940, 3com905, mtrr enabled,
ioapic enabled.
We've tried several times with the same kernel and we've got the same
problem after a couple of minutes. Sometimes the machine was completely
blocked, even ping didn't work, others ping was ok but everythng else was
down. Sysrq couldn't sync nor unmount disks.

We went down to 2.2.16 and everything it's ok.

Hope this helps.
