PostPosted: Wed Nov 07, 2012 7:46 pm    Post subject: vanilla-source kernel 3.6.5 and 3.6.6 crash at end of boot Reply with quote

I am getting a "general protection fault" after boot when my Gentoo system uses either Linux (vanilla-source) 3.6.5 or 3.6.6 but 3.6.4 works without issue. I am using the same configuration file (just using 'make oldconfig; make -j13; make modules_install to build each kernel.)

Below is the end of the boot where the 'general protecton fault' occurs.

Any suggestions on how fix this? Should I post this request on a different forum?

Thanks

do you - by chance - have a serial-ata drive connected to an usb-connector/adapter ?

if not best bet would be to remove that device from kernel configuration and re-compile the kernel


otherwise I'm sure the kernel devs will help you :)

why does a plugged in device affects the compilation ?

don't know :)

the error is referring to the adapter - so I thought if he doesn't have that adapter in use (whether via usb or on the mainboard) but enabled it in the kernel configuration - removing it from config and compiling the kernel without its driver would help as a quickfix - when the box is needed for work

as long as that general protection error doesn't impacts functionality leave it in ...

Got a similar message when I want to shut down my laptop. Have to power it off with the button then because it hangs.

I figured out what the problem was. I have two programs I wrote that connect to serial devices via the Keyspan usb to 4-serial-ports. When the driver was called a GPF occurred. I started up the programs at boot time so I originally thought it was a boot issue.

I sent the information to linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org and was promptly sent back a patch to
drivers/usb/serial/keyspan.c and was told there was an error in a source code commit in the latest kernels and a subsistent patch will correct the issue.

The patch works. (I just have to remember to add the patch to the vanilla-sources until the patch hits kernel.org.)
