Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference

Post by Umaid Singh Rajpurohi » Sat, 06 Apr 2002 17:00:08



Hello all,

we are running clearcase,sun grid engine on RedHat Linux 7.1
(kernel 2.4.2) on IBM Xseries one U servers that has
two CPU's and we mount all the files to be processed using
autofs.
Here is uname -a
Linux  2.4.2-2smp #1 SMP Sun Apr 8 20:21:34 EDT 2001 i686
unknown

I have more then sufficient physical memory and swap space
Here is some swap space detail form top

Mem:  1543868K av,  507684K used, 1036184K free, 0K shrd, 317576K
buff Swap: 5116576K av,0K used, 5116576K free 33076K  cached

we are running n number of IBM X Series server every now and then  
one or two servers crashes and don't allow me to do anything
except hard reset.

   The /var/log/messages says something like:

1. INFO: kernel: Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference

Out of the blue today I received this message across the system from the
kernel:

Kernel: Unable to handle NULL pointer dereference at virtual address c0000030
kernel: current->tss.cr3 = 075c0000,
kernel: *pde = 00102067
kernel: *pte = 00000027

I am running v2.0.14 w/ SMP enabled on a Tyan S1668 MB.  Kernel compiled
with pentium pro optimization.  Anyone have any ideas?  I've never seen
this before.
