SubjectOops in kswapd (Kernel 2.4.17)
Is there some kind of memory problem with kernel 2.4.17? I noticed in an
article at:

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=101096234600708&w=2

and another at:

http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0201.1/0809.html

that people were getting oopses in kswapd. I also had the same problem
this morning. The kernel froze up totally. Not even SysRq keys would
work. I am running 2x400mhz PII in an SMP machine with 512mb RAM. I have
attatched the syslog of the oops and what I got when I ran it past
ksymoops. I'm using 2.4.17 on a stock Red Hat 7.2 machine. I built it
with gcc 2.96 (the 2.96-98 version that comes with red Hat 7.2.)

Can anyone help me out? I'm not subscribed to this list, so please cc me
any advice. Thank you very much.

Jan 14 08:42:47 pegasus kernel: <1>Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 000001f8ksymoops 2.4.3 on i686 2.4.17. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.4.17/ (default)
-m /usr/src/linux/System.map (default)

Warning: You did not tell me where to find symbol information. I will
assume that the log matches the kernel and modules that are running
right now and I'll use the default options above for symbol resolution.
If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log, you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and where to find
map, modules, ksyms etc. ksymoops -h explains the options.
