sw12: System Stability Issues (long)


I am having a lot of problems with my clean install of Slackware 12.0. I do not know if the problems stem from hardware, software, or firmware issues.

I ran Slackware 10.0 from 2004 through 2006, without any problems. It was solid. I ran Zenwalk from 2006 until I installed Slackware 12.0. When I started using Zenwalk, I added an external modem and replaced my IBM Versatile Scroll mouse with a Logitech Optical USB mouse. I started noticing problems at that time.

The problems revolve around firefox constantly freezing or crashing, frequent crashes of KDE/XFCE4 to KDM/GDM, and having to login twice.
(Search my previous posts.)

According to Western Digital's software, my hard drive is OK. According to 7 hours of memtest86+, my 384 MB of RAM is OK.

I am using a 1 GHz Athlon with an ATI Radeon 9600 Pro video card.

I really don't know what to do at this point.

Here is my dmesg (Note: the lines with "NMI received for unknown reason 2d on CPU 0"):
Code:

You must change to generic kernel. Read /usr/doc/mkinitrd-1.1.2/README.initrd.

I ran a Google search on your error and got quite a few results.

The actual cause of this error seems to vary quite a bit.

Some people say that flaky hardware was the cause. Others report that a kernel upgrade fixed it.

The default kernels which come with Slackware 12.0 include support for lots of hardware which you may not have. For this reason, (if I were you), I'd compile a custom kernel which only includes support for the hardware in your machine. Be brutal. If in doubt, leave it out.

Don't forget to change the "CPU Type" option. In the default kernels, this is set to i486. This alone will make a big difference.

If you haven't done this before, you might want to leave your old kernel in your lilo.conf as well, so that you will at least be able to boot the machine if you mess up your kernel config.

I think Road_map hit the nail on the head. If you read the CHANGES_AND_HINTS.txt file that comes with Slackware 12.0, it says:
Quote:
As stated earlier, it is recommended that you use one of the generic kernels
rather than the huge kernels; the huge kernel is primarily intended as
an "installer" and "emergency" kernel in case you forget to make an initrd.
However, if you do use one of the huge kernels, you will likely encounter
errors like this:
kobject_add failed for uhci_hcd with -EEXIST, don't try to register
These occur because the respective drivers are compiled statically into the
huge kernels but udev tries to load them anyway. These errors should be safe
to ignore, but if you really don't want them to appear, you can blacklist the
modules that try to load in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist. However, make sure you
remove them from the blacklist if you ever decide to use the (recommended)
generic kernels.

The advice is all well and fine, however, there are only 3 kernels packaged with Slackware 12: huge.s, hugesmp.s, and speakup.s. There is no "generic kernel".

You will find the other kernels in the slackware/a directory. Be sure to also install the kernel-modules package that goes with it.

Found kernel-generic (non-smp) in /extra and installed. Also installed the kernel-modules (non-smp) in /extra. Verified that bzimage points to kernel-generic, and commented out the initrd line I added in lilo.conf. I re-booted and got a nasty error regarding something about the /root directory.

Since kernel-modules-smp was loaded by default, maybe I should have installed kernel-generic-smp instead of the non-smp kernel.

Any thoughts on this?

You probably need to make an initrd rather than commenting it out of lilo. Read the README, it is quite simple to do.

My understanding is that you make an initrd after the boot process. At least, that is what I did when I made the first one.

When I started using Zenwalk, I added an external modem and replaced my IBM Versatile Scroll mouse with a Logitech Optical USB mouse. I started noticing problems at that time.

The problems revolve around firefox constantly freezing or crashing, frequent crashes of KDE/XFCE4 to KDM/GDM, and having to login twice.
(Search my previous posts.)

According to Western Digital's software, my hard drive is OK. According to 7 hours of memtest86+, my 384 MB of RAM is OK.

I am using a 1 GHz Athlon with an ATI Radeon 9600 Pro video card.

I really don't know what to do at this point.

Here is my dmesg (Note: the lines with "NMI received for unknown reason 2d on CPU 0"):

Hi,

Local APIC disabled by BIOS -- you can enable it with "lapic"
mapped APIC to ffffd000 (0130b000)
Is there a reason for the APIC being disable in the BIOS?

This could be your 'NMI'related problem!

I would change the BIOS setting for the 'APIC' to see what happens

If you are using one of the huge kernels, you don't need an initrd to boot. You may choose to do one anyway, but that is up to you. The generic kernels, on the other hand, do not have the filesystems built in to the kernel, but rather provide them as modules. So you must do an initrd in order to boot one of these kernels, otherwise the kernel can't read the filesystem.

I don't know what happened to the README.initrd file in 12.0, but the one from 11.0 will explain it all and can be found at ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar.../README.initrd.

Hi,

The 'lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 2007-07-07 07:37 README.initrd -> /usr/doc/mkinitrd-1.1.2/README.initrd' is a link. Are you you sure that the docs were installed. Just because the link is there doesn't mean the doc is.

'cat /usr/doc/mkinitrd-1.1.2/README.initrd' to see.

If not there then get it from here or from '/slackware/a/mkinitrd-1.1.2-i486-3.tgz' your cd1 iso.

edit: forget to include mkinitrd location

I created an initrd, re-did the links in the /boot directory, and re-ran lilo.

My dmesg does look much cleaner, however, I am still having problems as noted in the first post.

For instance, last night, while playing KPatience on window 1 and loading LinuxQuestions (firefox and kppp dial-up) on window 2, my system froze. During the evening, I had several firefox crashes, and a few 'returns to kdm'. I do not know if my the problem is hardware, or software related, I just don't know why these problems should occur on a clean install of Slackware 12.

Hi,

Did you enable the 'APIC' in your BIOS? You didn't state anywhere in the thread that the PIC was enabled. This could be your problem since emulation was shown in the original post.

Quote:
excerpt from your dmesg;

SMP motherboard not detected.
Local APIC not detected. Using dummy APIC emulation.
Brought up 1 CPUs
This indicates that you are not using the on board Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller or that there is a problem with the PIC.
