Unable to handle kernel paging request!!


Hi All,

When will we have a 'Unable to handle kernel paging request!!' message. I think we will get this while trying to access a reference which is not valid. Is that right?


Thanks,

Sounds like a bug in the kernel itself or (more likely) with one of the drivers. Do you get an "oops" message or kernel panic?

The kernel oopses when it encounters a bug (ex: illegal memory access, illegal instruction, etc.) while executing kernel code. So the term "oops" is kind of a catch-all for many different errors. In some instances, it's hardware that's at fault (for example, bad RAM might cause an oops), but in others -- probably most cases -- it's a software bug or similar issue.
