Issue with Fedora VM, kernel panicing


Hey guys,

I've got this issue that I hope you can help me with. I've got a VM that is based on Fedora and when I spin the VM up it goes through the usual initial splash screen until it hits a "call trace" and it runs about 20 lines before it pauses always on a particular line and it won't load past this screen.

The last line on the screen is

[<c0408dfe>] kernel_thread_helper+0x6/0x10

Perhaps, ... a few things:
  • There's a sticky thread at the top of the Newbie forum which talks about kernel panics, but it may not yield enough helpful information for your question, Kernel Panic (not syncing): attempted to kill init!
  • A bit more details from your log may be helpful. That one line you've shown is not an error, but rather part of something, be that error or some other report. Therefore some more of the lines of output would be helpful.
  • You should describe better
    1. What you have for a system
    2. What OS you are using
    3. What VM software you are running
    4. How you have configured your VM to run
    5. Where you obtained your Fedora kernel from
  • I'm considering moving this thread to the Linux-Kernel forum, but first I'd like to know if it is just something like a bad configuration on your VM or that you had grabbed a kernel which isn't able to run on your target.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll attach a link to so you can see a screenshot of what I see.

In response to your questions.

> There's a sticky thread at the top of the Newbie forum which talks about kernel panics, but it may not yield enough helpful information for your question, Kernel Panic (not syncing): attempted to kill init!

>> this is not the issue, see the URL above

> A bit more details from your log may be helpful. That one line you've shown is not an error, but rather part of something, be that error or some other report. Therefore some more of the lines of output would be helpful.

>> unfortunately I can't see any logs other than what is provided in the URL, this is a pre-built VM that i'm using to study for an industry qualification

> You should describe better

> What you have for a system

>> CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 1700
>> 16 GB RAM
>> Windows 10

> What OS you are using

>> Windows 10, 64 bit

> What VM software you are running

>> I've tried VMware Player, VMware workstation 10 and VMware workstation 14

> How you have configured your VM to run

>> I was told the VM was plug and play so I haven't configured it in any other way

> Where you obtained your Fedora kernel from

>> Like I said I was given this VM to study for a industry qualification and it's pre-built

> I'm considering moving this thread to the Linux-Kernel forum, but first I'd like to know if it is just something like a bad configuration on your VM or that you had grabbed a kernel which isn't able to run on your target.

>> That's fine, I just need some answers


On a side note I did some more research and I think I might need to upgrade the kernel on the fedora VM since it's not compatible with my hardware. Also, i've got a laptop with Windows 10 and an i7 CPU that runs the VM fine but the problem with that it's a work laptop.

Must be a pretty old image - on the i7, from the Fedora guest open a terminal (hit the "Windows" key, and select the icon or type terminal)) then issue these and post the output here - copy-and-paste works from the terminal menus.
Code:
lsb_release -a
uname -a
.

To get all the kernel oops logs, you'll need to attach a serial terminal to the guest and watch from the hipervisor host.
