What does it mean? (picture included)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all was restarting my sig rig and during the shutdown i got a bunch of text on the screen that said stuff like "caught abort, core dump" and "kernel panic - not syncing" and after a little while (5 minuets) i just held down the power button. So I was just wondering if anyone knew what all this meant. Last i did oc today 4000.460 mhz at 1.34v and this was the second restart today at those settings.

A quick google might have anwsered your question. My thoughts on a kernel panic (I have not experienced these often) is that it is like the BSOD of the Linux kernel. It could exactly be because of your overclocking, although I have gotten kernel panic from screwing up the files on my hard drive. Don't worry, it shouldn't be anything major. No damage should be done as a result of it.

A kernel panic is where the kernel crashes. The kernel is bottom most layer to an OS, so if a kernel crashes, then you're basically screwed.

As said above, Windows' BSOD is another example of a kernel panic.

You got a kernel panic (for the first time?) do noting about it, just hit reset or hold the power button to shutdown - unless it starts happening more, and then if that happens look at the messages.

What happened / what were you doing when you got the kernel panic?

I can count on 1 hand the number of times i've got a kernel panic in Linux - they're very rare. So it might pay to look into this as it could be a symptom of a bigger issue (though I wouldn't let it worry you just yet smile.gif )

well i just changed my desktop and conky wouldn't show up so i restarted the computer from the menu and left the room to do laundry, Came back and it said that, clicked some buttons and moved the mouse, no luck so i held down the power button. Computer started up fine and i got to my desktop and conky even showed up (i have it as a start up progam.). And thats it.

ahhh, you might have caused that by holding in the power button while the system was starting up / shutting down. so it probably wont happen again.

If it does though, post back here. There's various memory and HDD tests we can do to make sure that your hardware isn't failing smile.gif
