kernel panic on shutdown Mint 19.3

Post by solar1951 »

For the last week or so when I have been shutting down the system I get the message regarding "kernel panic - not syncing"
I am using the default kernel 4.15.0.76 - generic and before last week there was no problem.
System boots and runs fine.
What update could have caused this ? Or is it something else ?

Hi. The senior members, the one who are best likely to help, are very likely going to want more system info so probably best to go ahead and open a terminal, expand the window a bit so every thing is not so jumbled up and run the command inxi -Fxz, then post the results back here. Sorry, that's all I got.

I have the same problem, though it's not occurring on every shutdown.
It would be appreciated if someone can give some feedback on this.

I experienced the same thing with default kernel 4.15.0.76 - generic. I went back to 4.18.0-25 following the directions from Update Manager > View > Linux Kernels WARNING! screen.

I know I can't stay there, but it has given me reliable shutdowns. Now, I'm watching for a resolution here or elsewhere in the forums.

Is there anything in the logs? try posting results from sudo grep -i err /var/log/kern.log|tail -n 30 and put that between "code" and "/code" tags like you did for the inxi output.

Also dmesg|grep -i err|tail -n 30 results would help.

There was an update for 4.15 kernels yesterday. It wouldn't hurt to apply that update. 4.15.0-88 is the current version.

EDIT: Additional information:
I would not install an unsupported kernel, and there are still more potential issues with 5.3.0-* kernel than with the LTS 4.15.0-* kernel.

so, to solve your shut down issue, you'd rather use a totally unsupported kernel? would've been better off at least trying one of the 5.3 kernels. at least they are still supported for a bit.

the 4.15 kernel was just updated. try that one out even.

As the person who started this post I can report that the problem resolved itself with no intervention from me. Just one day it started to shutdown fine and has continued to do so 8)
I wont mark it solved as others seem to be having the same problem.

Came back to report I tried all the above suggestions. The one that gave the longest relief was the most recent update of 4.15. As with the OP my shutdowns became normal until today's which was back to the similar panic on shut down. I'll continue researching and return if there is a lasting solution for me.

The recently available 5.3.0-40-generic has worked for me with Linux Mint 19.3 "Tricia".

:) Thanks to everyone who participated in this topic, I learned much.

Just to report back. Still happening for me with kernel 4.15.0.88-generic.
It was ok for few days until recent Linux firmware update, when the problem reoccurred.
It's really strange, hopefully this mystery will be resolved soon. :)

Yeah i had my first hard crash after installing that 1.173.15 Linux Firmware update.

I'm wondering if many of the people that are posting recent issues (CTD etc) had installed that firmware update also? I had to revert mine back to 1.173.12 (.13 and.14 are not offered). Thread here about that:

viewtopic.php?f=46&t=313338

You could try that and see if the issue goes away, you can simply re-install that firmware update if it does nothing.
