Re: machine crashes with kernel panic: fatal exception in interrupt

Or is there really a kernel bug?

Replacing the network card won't solve the original problem however as there should be no networking involved, only USB file transfers.

Thank you for your response and any help you can give. You undoubtedly saw my later post with a different subject of "after upgrade backups cause machine crash" which had some additional information but no respondents. I am not altogether convinced it is a kernel problem entirely as I cannot go back to the old kernel and do the backups as I once did before the upgrade. If I wanted to get a newer kernel I presume I could include testing in my sources.list and install the latest kernel-image from there. That would make the machine even more 'mixed', however.

Some other issues with this machine that may or may not be related. In kern.log, I occassionally get messages like:
kernel: BUG: dst underflow 0: f5c09580 at f8dd7c57
kernel: BUG: dst underflow 0: f5f74e80 at c022fc29
surrounded by:
kernel: icmpv6_send: addr_any/mcast source
I haven't found much googling to indicated what that is about
dst = network interface destination
icmpv6 = icmp using ipv6  with broacastor multicast source
I am not an expert but it sounds like possible issue with a network card
in this machine. Maybe replace the network card?
