kernel panic: 00006

kernel panic: 00006

Post by Steve Hove » Fri, 12 May 1995 04:00:00

Since I installed the tcpip stuff (net38?e) I get kernal panic 00006
approx once every other week on my pentiums.

Does anyone know of a solution?

Is the tcpip stuff hard to remove? (I want my old files back!)


1. panic not rebooting even though /proc/sys/kernel/panic=1?

Anyone know why a kernel panic would not cause a reboot even though /proc/sys/kernel/panic is set to "1"?

This morning I had the following message on the console of a 2.2.14 box that had been sitting idle overnight:

When I pressed ENTER, I found that bash was still responding, though when I tried to run "top" everything froze until I pulled the plug on the box:

   total 3
   drwxr-x---    2 root     root         1024 Nov  7 23:56 .
   drwxr-xr-x   13 root     root         1024 Nov  7 19:56 ..
   -rw-------    1 root     root            5 Nov  7 23:56 test.txt

   Kernel panic: Free list corrupted

1) Anyone know why the kernel panic didn't cause a reboot?

2) Or maybe why something like this would even happen?
