Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt
I get the above kernel panic with exactly the same error when:
a) After doing a Media Check that yields a PASS of a remaster of my system and I strike the ENTER key to continue booting. Doing a hard reset of the system results in a successful boot from the LiveCD with no problems. Booting directly from a LiveCD remaster (without doing a Media Check detour) results in a successful boot with no problems.
b) When I try to boot the new ZEN-mini 2009.2 LiveCD. The previous version, ZEN-mini 2009.1 LiveCD, boots with no problems whatsoever.
c) When I make a LiveUSB and try to boot from it, BUT have no problems when I make a LiveUSB using MiniMe 2008.
At my site, on multiple machines, there appears to be a pattern of regression for remasters:
* LiveUSB remasters don't work on PCLOS versions newer than 2008...
* Zen-mini remasters don't work on PCLOS versions newer than 2009.1...
* PCLOS-Gnome remasters used to boot without problems after a Media Check and now they don't...
* PCLOS-Gnome remasters using upcoming kernel 18.104.22.168 don't boot at all as described here: http://linuxgator.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2139
Being able to make a remaster is part of my backup strategy and this distro is starting to make me nervous.
