    I solved this problem from switching the nvidia driver.

    As per the prior output, I had been using the open-source Nouveau driver, but I switched to the nvidia-304 (proprietary, tested) option in...

    [mythbuntu] How to diagnose a kernel panic?

    I have a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1250 tv capture card which I've used for over a year in an AMD64 machine running both 11.04 then 11.10 without any problems.

    Recently, I moved that card to another...
  6. Re: Capture Card Recommendation: what is compatible with the current kernel?

    Nick, thanks for all the replies, especially regarding the HD Homerun tuner.

    It's an interesting concept, and if I do have to replace my existing capture card, I think I'm going to try that.

    As...
  7. Re: Capture Card Recommendation: what is compatible with the current kernel?

    It's definitely not encrypted; I've had the same cable service since the switch to HD a few years ago, and I've always been able to record any channel w/o a problem.

    It's just that when I set...

  9. Capture Card Recommendation: what is compatible with the current kernel?

    Re: Kernel panic on video playback

    Thanks for all the replies and suggestions.

    I think I'm simply going to reinstall 11.10, since I know my capture card has no problems with that kernel version.

    Re: Kernel panic on video playback

    Thanks for spotting that (I know very little about the kernel).

    Re: Kernel panic on video playback

    You're right, there was an earlier version of the kern.log file (it was /var/log/kern.log.1 actually), but it didn't contain any of the actually panic details, and just matched what I'd already...

    I'll do that the next time it happens, and post it here (I've shut the thing off for the time being).

    BTW, is that the only way to get at the panic information? None of the other logs have it?

    Re: Kernel panic on video playback

    Update: well, that didn't take long.

    The bleeding-edge ati driver didn't change a thing, and I'm still getting kernel panics.

    It's weird in that I used that box for years running debian, and...

    Re: Kernel panic on video playback

    Thanks for replying.

    It's a shame because the open source ATI Radeon driver actually works pretty well most of the time, and I don't have any problems when booting, etc.

    It's just that after n...
