I arrived at work this morning to find that my desktop unit
(CentOS-6.6 KVM) halted with a kernel panic. I am not conversant with any way to save the console display in this case and there was rather a lot of text. I jotted down a few notes and power-cycled the unit to restart. which it did and I am using now to compose this message.
The few notes that I manually copied, subject to transcription errors, were:
? pci-configure – slot 0x365.0x420
. . . pic (ed. note: transcription error? maybe pci?)
. . . pciehpd – Tainted: G D ——– 2.6.32-504.12.2.el6.x86_64 #1
. . . kvm 2998 cpu0 disabled: perfctr wrmsr 0xc1 data 0xabcd
1. Is there any way to get the entire console display following a panic as a text file?
2. I take that this points to a hardware issue of some sort. Any suggestions as to where I look?
The system has two NICs but one is disused and has no cable. Following a update last year I began receiving console messages complaining about this state but ignored them.
