kernel panic on fresh install

Postby BlobBob on Mon Apr 02, 2012 6:41 am

Hello forum,
it seems like I have kernel panics if is start my notebook. This happens about every second time I start the computer.
It's a fresh(clean) install of the KDE version of mint on a HP tx2 (1020us). I think its something with that interrupt you can see on the picture, but I'm not sure and I dont know what to do.

best regards
bob

I would start by trying to boot to safe mode (if you get that far)

once you get to safe mode you can look at some logs.
they are located in /var/log. dmesg, messages, and bootlog.log (the latest dmesg and boot.log will be from your boot to safe mode).
booting into safe mode is also a great diagnostic. It will tell you if you have a hardware issue(not making it in) or a software issue(boots into safe mode).

Hello Jupiter_Spunk,

which safe mode do you mean? This safe mode I can choose at the login screen? If so, so I cant select it if I have a kernel panic :)
But maybe I expressed myself poorly, with "about every second time" I meant 50% of trying the notebook starts perfectly otherwise the panic. So I dont think is a hardware issue.

So if I can read the boot.log and dmesg, there is nothing special to find. But I can not find "messages".

Ok, if you can get in 50% of the time. then check the logs I suggested after a failed boot for any errors, or even to see where they stop. It might give you an indication of where the computer is hanging up.

Also review this

and see if you can give us some more information. It might help us to help you.

Unless an update or a later BIOS fixes it: it is a hardware type problem, unless you have already looked for your kernel version and found no bugs listed that match you issue..
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=112566
--a general one, but check the Mint forums or Ubuntu same version number, eg Kubuntu 12: if you are using the latest Mint 12x distribution
Code: Select all
uname -r
uname -a

--in a terminal: command line
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

--in a terminal: command line


Then you really have to dig into the program to categorize the likely cause and go from there

The files that you posted are for the most part incomplete. But

fsck from util-linux 2.19.1
/dev/sda6: sauber, 215431/3153920 Dateien, 1962076/12606464 Blöcke
rpcbind: Cannot open '/run/rpcbind/rpcbind.xdr' file for reading, errno 2 (No such file or directory)

rpcbind: Cannot open '/run/rpcbind/portmap.xdr' file for reading, errno 2 (No such file or directory)



Can you do a

Code: Select all
df -h


and post the results. Seems to be having problems with sda6.

That may indicate a problem with your os drive.

I would start by booting to a live CD, then fsck -y your OS drive.

It may be kernel panicking because it is having issues reading from your os drive.

Have you seen other issues when your up and running?

You can also use
http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd
It has multiple Hard Disk utlilities to diagnose hard drive issues.
for instance HDD Scan 3.3,
If you find issues, Backup, and try a repair with the HDD manufacturers utility.
