HELP! Kernel Panic!!

Unread postby OSWebman » Sun Apr 18, 2004 10:05 am

After a lot of tinkering, the Octane boots and passes diagnostics, but all versions of Irix that I have on hardisks give me Kernel Failures on mainboards that have been used for a while. Short of tossing the system and/or components how can I fix this? Is there anyway to boot without any services through sash ie..single user mode or overide a kernel fault?

Code: Select all

PANIC: KERNEL FAULT
PC:0xa8000000202e7d40 ep: 0xffffffffffffbc48 EXC
code:128 'software detected SEGV'
bad addr: 0x3e8 cause: 0x8<CE=0


The mainboard connectors are perfectly clean.
Please help out, any suggestions are useful...I feel like I'm so close to the finish line/login screen.
Thank you,
Eugene Redko
