Slackware 14 RC5 64 Kernel Panic


Hi All,

I am getting a kernel panic on the very first boot up from the hard drive after the install.

http://ncsu.adancalderon.net/slackware/DSCF4798.JPG

I am not really certain what it causing it.

The Hardware is an AMD Phenom 9950 Quad-Core 2.6 GHz
I got 4 Gigs of RAM DDR2
The Motherboard is an ASRock A789LM-S with BIOS 1.30
Northbridge: AMS RS780L (760G)
Southbridge: AMD SB710

The system seems to work well with Slackware 13.37 64.

Does anyone have any idea?

Thanks,

Adan

Hi AceStrider1 and welcome to LQ.

Please tell us which kernel you used to boot and append or attach your /etc/lilo.conf to your next message.

If you are using a generic kernel, make sure you have generated an initrd.gz.

Lol, comparing a BETA version of Slackware against STABLE versions is so FAIL.

EDIT: Ops.. wrong thread...

Hi all again,

I decided to try the official release of Slackware 14 today.

http://ncsu.adancalderon.net/slackware/DSCF4830.JPG

I can't seem to even get past the installer. This appears shortly after trying to format the swap, but it has happen at different points during the installation.

I believe there is something wrong with kernel 3.2.29

Any ideas?

Thanks again for reading,

Adan

Fixed it

I fixed the Kernel Panic. Tried swapping every piece of hardware. Even Updated individual modules on the BIOS and re flashed. This motherboard's BIOS also had a defective PXE module that I updated. In the end, using a different CPU with the same specs fixed it. I then went to this site http://www.amd64.org/support/microcode.html and got a microcode update for the CPU. I booted using an old Parted Magic CD. After I updated the micro code on the old CPU, everything seems fine. Hope this helps anyone else out there.
