photo of vga console with Oops traceback
Description of problem: random kernel Oops
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: once only
Steps to Reproduce:
1. opcontrol --start
2. shutdown -h now
Actual results: Oops; photo of VGA console will be attached
Expected results: no problem
The picture of the traceback shows it isn't the first to happen on that machine. It's tainted D and W. Do you have the first oops in logs somewhere?
If you could update to the kernel in f18 updates-testing and try again that would be appreciated.

syslog (/var/log/messages) for entire session
No, there is no Oops report in syslog (entire syslog is attached.) Perhaps this was an error-within-an-error.
I'm now running kernel-3.6.0-0.rc6.git0.2.fc18.x86_64, and I am also using serial console, logged via minicom on another machine.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
More information and reason for this action is here:
Is this still an issue with the 3.9 kernels in F19?
I have not seen it in a few months on Fedora 18, kernel-3.8.4-202.fc18.x86_64 and recent predecessors. I haven't seen it on Fedora 19, either; but that's on different hardware.
