2.4.[5 - 6pre5] boomerang_start_xmit -> kernel panic

Post by Steven Walte » Tue, 26 Jun 2001 05:20:09

I too have been experiencing this on a gateway for a DSL modem.  The
backtrace is almost exactly the same.  On this machine, the bug results
in an "Aieee:  Killing Interrupt Handler".  I have to manually copy the
oops, and as such I copied only the backtrace, and parts of it may be
incorrect.  I've attached it anyway, just in case it helps someone.

I would really like to see this fixed, and so am willing to help
diagnose and test any patches.

1. Redhat 6 >> VFS problem >> Kernel panic??

Hi all,

Newbie question (yet again....???)

In line with instructions given in the APC Linux Guide just tried to
get Red Hat 6.0 running on my PC and got the
following error (i.e. installation freezes there):

"VFS cannot open root device 08:12 - Kernel panic:VFS:
Unable to mount root fs on 08:21"

I also tried creating a boot disc (boot.img) and then running that
with the problem that the CD drive is not being recognized when
prompted to select the installation media.

PC is a Dell Pentium lll with a 27GB disc. The disc is partioned
(using Partition Magic) as follows:

C: primary, 7773 MB
  (Extended, primary : 19422 MB)
  Linux logical on Extended disc with 1427 MB and Swap with 133 MB
  D: Logical 8926 MB
  E: Logical 8934 MB

Could anyone point me to a FAQ page or help with above problem?

Thanks for your help in this matter.
