oops trace from 2.6.25-0.218.rc8 (3.22 KB, text/plain)

Description Michal Jaegermann 2008-04-13 00:21:26 UTC
Description of problem:

The following was produced in log files:

BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffc200002b1e08
IP: [<ffffffff8838291d>] :radeon:radeon_driver_lastclose+0x21/0x3b
....
Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed

A full oops trace is attached.

After such oops a zombie X process is left in a D state  and
cannot be killed.  A display and a keyboard stop responding although
a login from a remote is still possible.  The message "reboot is neeeded"
above is not kidding.

It looks like that this is always repeatable with a help of
'pkill -f gdm' command.  Rebooting with 2.6.25-0.204.rc8.git4.fc9.x86_64
kernel makes that command to perform without oopsing.

'pkill -f X' does not seem to be a problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.25-0.218.rc8.git7.fc9.  Also /usr/sbin/gdm-restart
seems to be harmless but that just sends SIGHUP to an existing
gdm process and does not terminate an exisiting one.

How reproducible:
apparently always as described

I am afraid that I am getting the same oops by just logging out
from a desktop session.

Comment 3 Michal Jaegermann 2008-04-16 19:12:34 UTC
With an update to kernel-2.6.25-0.234.rc9.git1.fc9.x86_64 so far,
so good. :-)  Thanks.
