I have a strange problem with my system running Linux 0.99.10, (had
the same problem with pl9)
If I let the system sit for a while without doing anything, when I get
back, the first thing I try to run will crash with a message like:
ext2_free_inode: inode has count=22665
Unable to handle kernel paging request
at address C000085f
Oops: 0000 (Sometimes 0002)
. . .
(regester dumps, lots of scary looking hex numbers that don't fit on a
single post-it note)
. . .
Let me say up front what is strange about my system: I have a 40-MHz
AMD '386 clone chip for a processor (no '387) and I have the AHA 1542C
SCSI card with the mondo line drivers connected to an external hard
disk (Fujitsu M2263-SA). Otherwise sort of a normal box.
I do not yet have one of the new "active" terminators, but am working
on getting one. The SCSI cable I use is a short (2 ft.) flat ribbon,
I think that should be OK.
I am hoping that someone with lots of Linux smarts could tell me what
I might be doing wrong with my setup.
I don't know if I should suspect the motherboard, the CPU chip, the
SCSI controller, or ???
Any and all help welcome.
Thanks all -- Gene
