System OOPS on soundserver crash
Last modified: 2008-02-11 17:39:14 EST
Description of problem:
The arts soundserver crashes at the beginning of the KDE session. The moment I
click OK to close the window informing the crash, the system freezes (I think
it's a kernel oops) and it stops responding even to keyboard commands, I am
forced to shut it down using the power off button of the computer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start KDE session
Working KDE session
Created attachment 292258 [details]
Soundserver crash window
Created attachment 292259 [details]
Created attachment 292260 [details]
kernel OOPS trace
If I leave the soundserver crash window alone, I can use the system just fine.
As soon as I try to close it or look at the backtrace, the kernel freezes.
Same as bug 391971, except mine triggers a kernel OOPS.
Page protection violation.

Can you confirm this is a single-processor system?
If you boot with the kernel option "noreplace-smp" does it prevent the kernel
OOPS when this happens?
My computer is a single-processor system (2 GHz Intel Pentium M).

No more kernel OOPS with this option. The soundserver still crashes though.

Patch went in kernel 188.8.131.52-118.
> And can you confirm this happened on a single-processor machine?
Yes, AMD Sempron 3000+ with Cool 'n' Quiet activated on Asrock mainboard.
I think I know what may have caused the bug on my system: I'm using a webcam for
which the driver is not yet included in the kernel modules. I need the
OmniVision 519 driver and I compiled the version provided on www.rastageeks.org
Not having the webcam connected at startup solves the soundserver problem and
therefore the kernel oops...
Hope this helps
