Kernel panic (SCSI problems)

Kernel panic (SCSI problems)

Post by br.. » Wed, 20 Nov 1996 04:00:00



Hi folks,

        We have a 9 GB Seagate Barracuda (ST19171W) attached to a
DPT SmartCache IV (PM2044W) scsi controller.  According to the people
at DPT, the controller will only support paritions up to 8 GB in size.
We've created a single 8 GB partition on the disk, run mke2fs on it and
mounted it.

        When we try to copy files to the disk, though, we get kernel
panics.  The text of the message is:

        kernel panic: scsi_free: trying to free unused memory

Appended below is the pertinent section of the syslog file.  (The system
is a PPro 200 running linux 2.0.25, with e2fsprogs 1.06, fdisk 2.1 and
libc 4.5.7.)  Any suggestions?

                                        Thanks in advance,
                                        Bryan

1. IWILL SCSI card - Kernel panic, I panic:-)

Hi All Linux Experts,

I have purchased an IWILL SCSI ULTRA Wide card that I want to
use instead of my old Adaptec Ultra SCSI card.

When Linux boots up it tries to do a modprobe and fails
to load the advansys.o module in '/lib/modules/2.2.16-3/scsi'
and goes into kernel panic.

I have tried adding the driver statement in

   /etc/conf.modules

where my old SCSI card was set up.

What am I doing wrong?

I tried to boot the RH6.2 CD-ROM and the card is found just
fine.  It is as if the kernel can not access the
'/lib/modules/2.2.16-3/scsi' directory when booting up
with the card.

Do I need to pass anything to the kernel via Lilo?

My '/lib/modules/2.2.16-3/scsi/advansys.0' resides
on a different partition from the boot partition.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Anthony
