Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 75038
kernel panic when going runlevel 0
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
Description of problem:
I have a board (MS-5184 by MSI Computer) that seems to have a faulty APM or ACPI
implementation. As soon as runlevel 6 has been reached, the kernel is doing a panic.
This is due to the halt settings that say "poweroff".
I would like to see a feature to disable the "poweroff" setting without editing
the init scripts (e.g. in sysconfig).
Bug exists in 7.3 as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. init 6 / shutdown -r now
what does the segment of the EIP address look like?
010:<something> or 06x:<something> ?
does reboot=c on the kernel command line at least fix the reboot ?
Oh, sorry, I switched 0 and 6. I meant runlevel 0 (halt), sorry.
general protection fault: f000
autofs tulip iptable_filter ip_tables ide-scsi scsi_mod ide-cd cdrom ext3 jbd
EIP: 0050:[<00008b55>] Not tainted
EIP is at Using_Versions  0xb54 (2.4.18-4)
(lot of stuff with eax, ebx, ecx, edx, esi, edi, ebp, esp, ds, es, ss)
Process halt (pid: 884, stackpage=c1365000)
(lot of stuff with Stack and Call Trace)
Code: Bad EIP value.
