Fatal Exception "NMI Interrupt" on kernel boot
|Reported by:||graham||Owned by:||axeld|
|Has a Patch:||no||Platform:||x86|
Recently I tried to boot Haiku off of a usb hard drive using my laptop.
Upon loading the kernel the spash screen remains grey (no color in icons) for 5 seconds (even the virtual machine boots faster) where upon it jumps to the 3rd icon and the kernel debugger starts.
As the kernel isn't fully loaded yet I cannot save the output to a file so I had to manually write down the text and reproduce the output.
As it looks, the error seams to be with the PCI module. I tried to use this bug as an oppertunity to learn the internals of the kernel and have learned a lot in the past week about programming a kernel than I have done reading about it for a year in books.
Unfortunatly I got lost at the device tree code (where are the preloaded modules listed?) and since I don't have experiance in programming hardware beyond basic assembly code I suspect I jumped in at the deep end. So I will leave this to you.
I (hopefully) have uploaded a typed version of the kenel debugger output and a basic profile of my hardware including the controllers and devices on the PCI bus.
This was done using a windows program but if you require more information I can boot Arch Linux off of another usb drive and give you another profile.
