Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 22333
Linux crashes while booting
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
When Linux 7.0 boots (on an Intel PIII 450Mhz) it crashes in the phases
'Checking for module dependencies' or 'Checking for new hardware'.
I get something like:
EIP: 0010: [<c013253e>]
Process kudzu (pid: 163, process nr:9, stack page=c7ab1000)..
It doesn't happen 100% of the time. Once, Linux just froze while 'kupdate'
was running in the background and the boot phase went ok.
I was using RedHat 6.2 with absolutely no problem and the update showed
this problem so I thought it was because of the update. So I wiped out
everything and installed it from scratch and still has the same problem.
My config is Intel PIII 450Mhz, 128Mo Mem, Ultra Viper TNT2 32Mo
Can you post the 'Call Trace:' portion of the oops as well?
Are you running the default shipped-with-7.0 kernel?
I'll try to reproduce it. Is there an easy way to copy the trace (can I find it
dumped into a file ?) or do I have to copy it by hand ?
I have downloaded the 2 iso files from RedHat ftp site and burned them on 2
CD-R. That's what I have installed with 0 modifications.

It is a snapshot of the crash (stack trace)
I have just uploaded a snapshot that shows the crash of the kernel when it
boots. I hope it contains the information that you need
OK, attached is the decoded oops info for the kernel. It's
a rather odd place to be crashing, it appears.

Decoded oops info
Bug against old 2.2 kernel tree. This bug contains no information which is
useful to us now so I am closing it
