Kernel Panic
« on: September 22, 2006, 01:53:32 AM »
I'm running a UT2k4 server. However recently without changing any configurations to the server of my recent knowledge I've been getting kernel panics very frequently. Sometimes the server can go a day or two but also sometimes it wont go for more than a few hours without one.

The following is displayed on the console

Code: [Select]
Oops: 0000
CPU: 0
EIP: 0010[<00002710>]
EFLAGS: 00010002
eax: 00000123   ebx: 00000001   ecx: 00000000  edx: 00002710
esi: c0257fa8   edi: 00000000   ebp: c0257fa8  esp: c0257f40
ds: 0018   es: 0018   ss: 0018
Process swapper (pid: 0, stackpage=c0257000)
Stack: c011eab2 c010b117 c0257fa8 00000000 c02916a0 c011e917 c02aaf60 c023ee68

       c023ee68 c01083a8 00000000 c0257f8a c023ee68 c0105390 c0256000 c0256000
Call Trace: [<c011eab2>] [<c010b117>] [<c011e917>] [<c010822a>] [<c01083a8>]
   [<c0105390>] [<c0105390>] [<c020f180>] [<c0105390>] [<c0105390>] [<c01053b3>]

   [<c0105432>] [<c0105000>]

Code:  Bad EIP value.
 <0>Kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!
In interrupt handler - not syncing


Any info would be greatly appriciated. If I can't figure this out I guess I will just be forced to reformat and start all over again :-/

Can you give your hardware details ?

Red Hat 7.2
Kernel 2.4.7-10

CPU Celeron 1.8GHz
Video Card ATI Rage Pro 128
Memory 512MB
Maxtor 20 GB HD

Is that enough information?

What I am seeing is BAD EIP value, mostly its caused when there is fault in hardware and sometimes can occure if you stopped a module while its being executed !

Well I definatly didn't stop a module because it happens randomly unless its being stopped by another process. Well that leaves me with a lot of possiblilities because there is a lot of hardware in the computer. Will formatting fix the problem possible or should I look into building a new server from scratch? I tried compiling a new kernel but when I do it fails to resolve DNS maybe because I didn't specify the exact ethernet card that is in the server. But that is because it wasn't listed in the configuration. I am very lost and don't know that much about linux but I know enough that it is better then Windows at running servers. Any help would be very appreciated.

As far as I think its a hardware issue, ie. compatibility issue. May be you may try to check few basic things like Changing setting in bios about PnP etc.

This issue is about resources, if kernel is not able to proper address resources for a device then such issues arises. Reason could be that either Kernel is not compatible with that device or some device is faulty.

I never suggest reformarting or doing things from scratch untill its really our of clue.

Here I think you should read this ..
