Kernel trap (Fatal trap 12)


Hi ,

I have a problem with my FreeBSD 5.3 box:
I keep receiving the following message (kernel panic ?)

Kernel Trap 12 with interrupts disabled

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
fault virtual address =0x138
fault code =supervisor read, page not present
instruction pointer =0x8:0x160700d
stack pointer =0x10:0xc93a2c80
frame pointer =0x10:0xc93a2c90
code segment =base 0x0, limit 0xffff, type 0x1b
=DPL 0, pres 1, def32 1, gran 1
processor flags =resume, IOPL=0
current process =28 (swi5: tty: ltmdm++)
trap number =12
panic: page fault
Uptime: 33m49s
Cannot dump. No dump device defined



I'm using the GENERIC FreeBSD kernel....

Here is my hardware configuration :

Processor : AMD K6-II 266 MHz (I know it's old ; I will have a full upgrade soon )
Motherboard : ACorp 5VIA77,
Chipset VIA MVP3 (Apollo)
RAM : 128MB+32MB+16MB = 176MB
Video Card : Leadtek WinFast A180B T 128 DDR (nVIDIA GeForce4 MX4000)
Sound Card : C-Media 8738
HDD :Quantum Fireball EX5.1A ( ~4.77 GB)
Fujitsu MPB3021ATU (~2.1GB)
CD-RW : ASUS QuieTrack 5232AS (52x32x52x)
WinModem : Lucent 56 kbs
Swap : 130 MB

Last time, this message appeared when I was browsing the FreeBSD packages with sysinstall...
Can anyone tell me what is this all about ??

I also use Linux but I hadn't any problem like this one .... (I'm new to FreeBSD)

Pop open your case and remove your RAM and reseat it. It sounds like you have some RAM that is starting to go bad. Sometimes just reseating the DIMMs helps.

What do you mean by removing/ 'reseating' the RAM ?
Just remove and put it back and that's it ?
I don't think my RAM is the problem... but if you say so I'll try that

thanx

Yes. Just remove it and put it back. It may or may not fix your problem. I had found somebody who had the same error message as you and followed the same steps and it took care of the problem. If you think it won't help, don't do it.
