Kernel Mode Error

Kernel Mode Error

Post by Lou Dellavers » Mon, 01 Feb 1993 07:42:05

I'm in BIG trouble. I loaded Colorado Memory Systems tape backup
software for the jumbo 250. The install seemed to work OK.
However the new kernel boots with the message
"modadm cannot register SC01"
"modadm cannot register TICLTS file already exists"
Then it dumps 4000 pages of memory and then halts. I know that the
old kernel was saved during the rebuild.

$64,000 question, how can I start this thing or restore the old
Reinstalling UNIX is 78 diskettes!!!

The system is Consensys SVR4.2 running on a 486/50.

Any help would be appreciated.

Please reply e-mail, and I will summarize the answers.

Thank you,


1. Kernel mode error - PANIC: k-trap

We have a customer site where about every 3-4 weeks we get the following
error which shuts the system down:

Unexpected trap in kernel modem

PANIC: k-trap - kernel modem trap 0x0000000E
trying to dump 4000 pages to dumpdev hd 1/41 at block 0

This PANIC does not get written to the /usr/adm/messages file

No other indications of a problem.  They turn the machine off and back off
(after a brief pause) and then it will run fine for another month....

This is a 486dx50 Mhz machine, with 16mb of memory, Adaptec 1542CF
controller, SCSI 670mb HD, Wangtek 250mb tape, dual floppy, Digiboard PCx
16 port multiport controller, running SCO UNIX 3.2v4.2
The software they run is RealWorld v6.5 and Crossroads Dispatching software.

I am at a loss to see what is going on here.  Nothing was found by looking
in the IT scripts.

Thanks for any comments.
