Problem Description: When compiling perl 5.8.4, kernel panics with no debuging
info other than:
Kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!
In interrupt handler - Not syncing
I was not able to get any other debugging info, even with netconsole. Anyway,
perl appears to build fine, but the kernel panics in the testing stage,
specifically after the "t/op/lfs" test, which says
# NOTE: this file tests how large files (>2GB) work with perlio (stdio/sfio).
# sysopen(), sysseek(), syswrite(), sysread() are tested in t/lib/syslfs.t.
# If you modify/add tests here, remember to update also ext/Fcntl/t/syslfs.t.
Please let me know if you need any further info. I'd be happy to help however I
That sounds fairly serious.
Please write down the oops trace from the screen, or
take a photograph of the screen. We do need
Yes, I guess the problem is I don't get a trace, at least not the trace info
I've seen on previous panics. I just get that two-line panic message. It had

don't have a serial device handy ATM) but only got the two-liner on the
netconsole as well. Likewise there's nothing in syslog.
Perhaps there's some setting I can enable in there kernel config to get more
Compiles and tests fine on rc2. Closing this bug.
