View Full Version : [xubuntu] Kernel Panics - Samsung N145

December 23rd, 2012, 11:58 PM
Ubuntu seems to be having occasional kernel panics on bootup on my Samsung NP-N145 netbook. No idea why. Anybody else having this problem? (I use Xubuntu that wouldn't make any difference).

See images attached - I can't seem to get any logs of the boot - only the boots before and after.

Forcing fsck to check both / and /home (I have /home on a separate partition) seems to have stopped it for now - I ran
sudo touch /forcefsck and
sudo touch /home/forcefsck. I also reduced the number of mounts before the filesystems are next checked using
sudo tune2fs -c 20 device (setting it to 20 mounts). Hope this is useful for anyone having kernel panics. I'll leave it for a bit to make sure this is definitely solved, and if it is I'll then mark the thread as solved.
