Caution: Kernel 4.15.0-60 freezes the machine at random

Post by eiver » Mon Sep 09, 2019 7:24 pm

Hi,

I am using LM 18.3 x64 Mate.
I upgraded the kernel to version 4.15.0-60 and since then I experience random freezes every 2-24h. No errors at all in logs. The last entry in syslog contains \00\00\00\00\00...

I found this:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1842447

The bug name is misleading. It has nothing to do with docker-compose. Its a confirmed kernel bug.
I have downgraded to 4.15.0-58.
I hope this will save your time.

Cheers,
Eiver

That sort of warning is utterly useless unless you have the same hardware. AT least provide an inxi report so others can see if it applies to them.

i upgraded to "-60" kernel and my ryzen3 machine would not boot. went down to "-58" or rather i should say timeshifted back down as the machine would not boot with the updated "-60" kernel

I guess the known bug in kernel 4.15.60 is why my system has marched forward to kernel 4.15.0-62 Bug #1842447 was fixed in the package linux - 4.15.0-62.69 [#20]:

Code: Select all

$ inxi -Sx3
System:    Host: computer Kernel: 4.15.0-62-generic x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 7.4.0 Desktop: MATE 1.20.1 
           info: mate-panel wm: marco 1.20.1 dm: LightDM 1.26.0 Distro: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS (Bionic Beaver) 
Always forward, never backwards! :wink:

yes, but how do go forward if the system will not boot? in order to go forward you need to take a step backwards, right? :mrgreen: also most of us don't have 4.15.0-62 where is it?

I am well aware that you may have to go back to K4.15.0-58 first, in all cases where your system does not boot with K4.15.0-60, in order to get the latest and greatest kernel K4.15.0-62.
About availability of K4.15.0-62: The Ubuntu software repositories simply delivered it to this machine last night.

Code: Select all

$ apt-cache policy linux-image-4.15.0-62-generic
linux-image-4.15.0-62-generic:
  Installed: 4.15.0-62.69
  Candidate: 4.15.0-62.69
  Version table:
 *** 4.15.0-62.69 500
        500 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
No dirty tricks applied. :wink:
