Kernel Panic after shutdown ?


If I try to shutdown my system I get a Kernel Panic just after it says "shutdown system" I never get it any other time. The only thing that has changed in the system is the memory I put in, could that be causing this?
Slackware 11, kde 3.5, 2.4.33 kernel.

try to put the memory out, and well, if your system now shuts down properly, the problem is the memory stick.
you can test memory with http://www.memtest86.com/ ( could be useful in dealing with your seller ? )

There is a disk called Ultimate Boot CD, which has a few memory test programs in it, all for free.

http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

Although they probably aren't as accurate as the stand alone memtory test machines.

I had a problem like that on an old box when I first started out with Linux and was running mandrake something or other (2000-1)

It puzzeled me and anyone I asked until I finally sorted it out. Madrake runs everything unless you know enough to switch it off. It had apm try to shutdown the box at the end of shutdown.

This gave me a kernel panic message every time.

Hey, that might be the problem I am having. I have an issue with APM giving me an error at boot.

Why not use ACPI and disable APM. Some BIOSes won't hander one or the other very well.

I dont know, It doesnt really matter to me what is used. I just disabled both of them in the bios. Im not really sure what the difference is anyway.

I think one of them should be enabled. Check wiki for more on them. APM is older, ACPI is newer. Both handle power management. You should have one and only one enabled in the BIOS, and the same one enabled in the kernel (or both really, one will just fail, letting the other one work).
