 <0>Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!


Steps to reproduce:

I use framebuffer console, vesafb works fine.  When neofb is compiled in,
I get the message above when booting (need a serial console...)
Comment 1 Jochen Hein 2003-01-17 08:40:10 UTC
With 2.5.59 the panic has changed.  The screen switches to graphics mode
but is garbled.  The decoded panic is:

This is now without a vga parameter.

*** Bug 518 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 5 Jeff Sipek 2003-10-17 20:41:16 UTC
Does this still happen in 2.6.0-test8?

Jeff.
Comment 6 Jochen Hein 2003-10-20 11:58:39 UTC
I'm just recompiling, but AFAICS there were no changes in neofb since a long
time.  I'll also try the latest fbdev where James Simmons made some changes.
Comment 7 Jochen Hein 2003-10-20 12:20:40 UTC
I recompiled with -test8 and run that kernel right now.  Fixed for me.
Comment 8 Jochen Hein 2003-10-20 12:35:50 UTC
Hm, not quite fixed.  -test8 booted and seemed to work, then I used lftp to
connect to ftp.kernel.org and did a "ls -rtl" in .../kernel/v2.6 and the
console froze.  After a reboot I found in the kernel log:

The latest fbdev-patch from James panics.  I'll get a serial console and
post the panic.

Comment 12 Jochen Hein 2004-01-03 21:36:25 UTC
I gave my TP 600 back so I can't test anything anymore.
Comment 13 Risto Sandvik 2004-01-06 11:44:26 UTC
I have this bug on an Acer Extensa 503T and I'd be happy to test possible fixes!
Comment 14 Antonino Daplas 2004-11-06 17:02:26 UTC
Is the bug still present in recent 2.6 kernels?
Comment 15 Jochen Hein 2004-11-13 06:12:02 UTC
Sorry, I can't test any longer; I gave the laptop back.
Comment 16 Nishanth Aravamudan 2005-02-17 09:32:38 UTC
Since Jochen does not have access to this hardware anymore, Risto, could you
test the latest kernels and / or would you be willing to test patches? If
there's no response for a while, I'll close this bug (we can reopen if needed).
