    Is this after an update? Can you boot to a different kernel?

    It sounds pretty terminal, tbh, It could mean a re-install - but if you can get another kernel image to boot it might be recoverable.

    Hi,
    I tried with different kernel and ramdisk then it worked. But its not working with our ramdisk and showing kernel panic.

    Thanks

    Sorry - if you hadn't bumped this post I'd have missed this (I've been away, see...)

    Your system isn't trashed - that's the good news. It could be that the new kernel that you've installed is corrupted in some way. You could try booting to the previous kernel and then use your package manager to re-install the kernel that isn't working properly.

    It could also be that there has been some kind of 'factory screw-up' in the production of the kernel image - you could boot the system up and check to see if the broken kernel has been updated.

    Also, check your distros release notes for the latest updates. You might find that they've missed a dependency and a new uncompression tool is needed to use the latest kernel, and that a solution to this might be the installation of a new package (again, you'd need to boot to the previous kernel and find the package in your package manager).
