    Solaris 11.1 on Dell d820 reboots after slim_install

    981422
      Hi All!

      I wanted to learn Solaris 11 so I have installed it on my laptop. However, after adding Gnome to the system by pkg install slim_install my system suddenly reboots after some time of work.

      In my /var/adm/messages I have found:
      +Dec 23 00:12:05 solaris genunix: [ID 478202 kern.notice] kernel memory allocator:+
      +Dec 23 00:12:05 solaris genunix: [ID 432124 kern.notice] buffer freed to wrong cache+

      +Dec 23 00:12:05 solaris genunix: [ID 655072 kern.notice] fffffffc804a59b0 genunix:kmem_slab_free+2e1+

      Does anybody have a clue how to sort it out? I am a total newbie in the subject of this system. I am using

          Dell d820? Try installing it on a different computer. It might be a simple case of unsupported hardware. I'm running it under a VM on my macbook pro.

            I would love to solve it like that :) The problem is that I don't have another machine so it's only a question of installing either Windows with VirtualBox or Solaris 11.1 as a native system which is the option I was interested in.

              I would not expect the system to panic by installing an install pkg over an installed system.

              In general, we recommend these steps to add the GNOME desktop stuff:

              http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23824_01/html/E24456/glnye.html#glulc

              I'm curious what FMA says about the panic, which you can view here:

              # fmadm faulty
              # fmdump

              Let us know if this provides any info.

              Thanks, Cindy

                Thank you Cindy for your answer.

                I did as it was in the Oracle doc once again but same thing happens every time. I have even tried with the Live DVD but the system reboots as it previously did.

                What I got from the commands you adviced is:
                globdan@solaris:~$ sudo fmadm faulty

                Response    : The failed system image was dumped to the dump device.  If

                the savecore directory.  Disk space usage by panics can be
                substantial.

                Action      : Use 'fmadm faulty' to provide a more detailed view of this event.
                If savecore is not enabled then please take steps to preserve the
                crash image. Use 'fmdump -Vp -u

                  See if there is any more clues in this output:

                  # fmdump -Vp -u
                  6249a51a-fbd8-ce64-e784-f7f1d1e7592c

                  You might need to pipe the above to more if its too verbose.

                  My hunch is that installing the desktop pkgs is exercising some additional memory
                  that is faulty and is causing the panic.

                  I would also check the Solaris 11.1 release notes to see if a problem like this is
                  documented.

                  Thanks, Cindy

                    Is it helpful somehow? Do you think that I could make my WiFi work with Solaris 10? I think that I will give Solaris 10 a try...
