Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 168258
x86-64 hits mm/slab.c:662 early during boot
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:22:02 EST
Description of problem:
On x86_64 2.6.13-1.1552_FC5 does not even try seriously to start. There is
an immediate oops, which scrolls of the screen and the whole machine is frozen.
Later I can try to catch that via a serial console if there is a serious need.
An i686 equivalent boots on my test machine without any incidents.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I can reproduce this.
It's hitting the BUG() in mm/slab.c:662, with a traceback of
kmem_find_general_cachep <- kmalloc_node <- kmem_cache_create <- kmem_cache_init
I'm still trying to find the actual cause of this.
2.6.13-1.1555_FC5 boots for me without surprises
