what does the kernel panic mean?
How should I obtain the reason of kernel panic?
How should I debug the program which result in a kernel panic?
What can I get from the panic information?
A kernel panic is a Unix term for when the kernel says, "something has gone seriously wrong and I can't recover from it". Common sources of kernel panics come from things such as being unable to mount the root partition, and therefore it will panic and provide a message such as:
VFS: Cannot open root device "sda3" or unknown-block(0,0) Please append a correct "root=" boot option Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block(0,0)
