Kernel Panic


I am trying to fix a kernel panic issue that I am having but it seems to be very complicated. The output of the panic is this:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000044

<0>Kernel panic: not continuing
In interrupt handler - not syncing

I cannot see what the exact cause is of this problem. Does anyone knows what this mean?

Re: Kernel Panic

Not having a clue about such things, I would say that your kernel is quite old, try upgrading if you can, you might inadvertently fix the fault while doing so...!

Re: Kernel Panic

I hope the problem may be because of kernel loadable module insertion. It tainted the kernel "EIP: 0010:[] Tainted: P "

And syncing problem ?? Are you trying 2.4.9 ? It is very old < 2.4.25 ?? Do you have data there is machine??

It is good to increase your kernel's age.
Easy to suggest when don't know about the problem!

Re: Kernel Panic

I'm not sure what version of kernel you have has to do with the problem.

Can you run the oops through ksymoops and repost? Look in Documentation/ksymoops.txt
Ted Nugent called. He wants his shirt back.
