#8634 closed bug (fixed)

vm_page_fault: unhandled page fault in kernel space at 0x0, ip 0x0

Description

I tried to start two live CDs on this computer. The graphical screen came up with the various icons indicating the load progress. After it got through the final icon, the operating system dropped into GDB.

I have tried a very recent nightly build (not sure which version) as well as the Alpha 3 release. Both show the same results.

I am including a photo of the screen for potential debugging purposes.

You should be able to start Haiku in Safe mode, then you will need to find aironetwifi and rename it to something else (e.g. aironetwifi.disabled) and reboot.

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by kurtis

Thanks. I tried to boot into safe mode. Note that I am running this off of a CD at the moment. Unfortunately, after the boot-notification area is finished iterating through the progress icons, it moves the notification area off to the left side and just hangs. At this point it is no longer attempting to read from the CD.

My steps to get here were:

  1. Select to Boot from CD using BIOS menu
  2. Hold left-shift down to bring up Haiku startup options
  3. Went into the menu and choose 'Safe Mode'
  4. From main menu, clicked continue booting.

Attached is a photo showing the state at which it sits. I let it sit for over 20 minutes just in case it was still making some sort of progress. However, nothing changed.

Looks like you have some graphic driver issues, try to enable Use fail-safe video mode in addition to enabling Safe Mode.

Thanks. That got me into the Installer. Are there any recommended ways on debugging this issue?

comment:6 Changed 6 years ago by kurtis

Actually, should I create a new ticket with the Video issue? I'm guessing it's separate from the initial crash issue. Admins can feel free to it to a new ticket as needed.

comment:7 Changed 6 years ago by diver

Yes, video (probably radeon) issue deserves it's own ticket.

comment:8 Changed 6 years ago by kurtis

Updates:

  1. Renaming the bin/aironet WIFI driver worked as a temporary solution for the initial issue.
  2. It would be great to have a real fix for this problem. It's not critical to me at the moment. I'm not sure how common this network chipset is, anyways.
  3. The other issue has been reported at #8637

comment:9 Changed 6 years ago by luroh

The bug may have been fixed along with #8684, please give R1 Alpha 4.1 a try.

Hi korli!

siarzhuk, could you check the FBSD_WLAN requirement flag when calling start_wlan()/stop_wlan(). The aironetwifi driver doesn't require this flag. Something like the following in device_attach():

   if (result == 0 && HAIKU_DRIVER_REQUIRES(FBSD_WLAN))
       result = start_wlan(device);

Same for device_detach(). Hope it helps.

Just curios: what is the purpose of this flag?

if (result == 0 && HAIKU_DRIVER_REQUIRES(FBSD_WLAN))

result = start_wlan(device);

OK, I'll try it today evening. But this laptop has definitley true WiFI antenna on the screen border. Will it work without wlan support? ;-)

It enables the net80211 structures. It isn't clear to me why it is not currently more used in our compatibility framework.

To cite the FreeBSD man page: "the an(4) driver uses unmodified packet mode instead of letting the NIC perform 802.11/ethernet encapsulation itself.". This probably explains why the driver only uses an ethernet interface (IF_ETHER).

Yes, proposed watchdog fixes the crash. After booting into system and attempt to open Network preflet I have observed new "Network" combobox filled with lot of empty menu entries with "wlan" icon at the right. At the next boot this preflet was not opened at all and syslog was filled with messages:

KERN: wlan_control: 9235, 76

Corresponding syslog is attached.
