Bug#466933: Debian-arm: kernel BUG at fs/inode.c:250!
Installing the new kernel linux-image-2.6.24-1-ixp4xx_2.6.24-4_arm.deb
seems to have fixed the crashing problem. The box has been running through
since Feb. 28 without a crash.
I'm still getting error messages like this about once a day:
Mar 12 19:50:03 slug kernel: Bad page state in process 'rrdtool'
Mar 12 19:50:03 slug kernel: page:c02e2ac0 flags:0x00000000
mapping:00000040 map count:0 count:0
Mar 12 19:50:03 slug kernel: Trying to fix it up, but a reboot is needed
The process causing the "Bad page state" is different from occurence to
occurence, but always part of the shell script running every 10 minutes
via a cron job. The job runs through without errors, however.
These messages also occured with the old kernel that crashed regularly.
Don't know if they had anything to do with the crashes, but at least the
new kernel is handling this problem better.
Should the case be closed?
