Subject:   panic using new install of 4.7 RELEASE
Message-ID:  <076b01c2af54$d9f63460$>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I have a fresh install of 4.7 RELEASE on a AMD K6-200 with 32 MB RAM.  And,
I keep getting kernel panics.

The first sign of any problem was while I was installing.  I checked the CD
for md5sum errors.  But, it was ok.  So, I tried an FTP (passive) install.
Still, every attempt crapped out until I finally selected the minimal
install.  All that I can remember it would say was, "syncing disks..."

Now that I have an installation, another problem occurs when I run
"portsdb -Uu".  It get about 5 minutes through and then it panics and does
an automatic reboot.  I've tried to capture the messages to screen.  But, it
usually reboots before I can write it all down.  One message on the screen
that I haven't been able to catch completely says something like:  "panic:
vm_object_deallocated allocated too many times".

Another message is longer and stays on screen.  It says:

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
fault virtual address      = 0xc4427f42
fault code                    = supervisor write, page not present
instruction pointer        = 0x8:0xc0376d4f
stack pointer               = 0x10:0xc41f2c88

code segment              = base 0x0, limit 0xfffff, type 0x1b
                                   = DPL 0, pres 1, def32 1, gran 1
processor eflags          = interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0
current process           = 84538 (sh)
interrupt mask             = none
trap number                =12
panic: page fault

syncing disks...

My guess is that I have some bad memory or something.  But, that's just a
very uneducated guess.

Thanks for any help,
