Subject:   Kernel Panic on 9.0-RELEASE When Attempting to Remove Files
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I'm attempting to remove a number of old files within a directory that
was rsynced over from another box.  However a number of files (old
symlinks and regular files in this instance) cause a kernel panic when
attempting to remove them using rm or unlink.

This is the panic message output:

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
cpuid = 1; apic id = 01

And this is the backtrace from kgdb:

This particular system is a VM running on a VMWare ESXi hypervisor. So 
far I haven't had any luck in finding a cause.
