I would like to thank all who sent a reply to my kernel panic message.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Basil Gunn contributed a lot in analyzing the screen dump :
" The kernel panic from your screen shot is from kernel file:
net/ax25/ax25_addr.c in routine ax25cmp() which compares two ax25
addresses one of which is null." he wrote.
His message reminded me an old bug I found in february 2016 in rose
ax.25 packet radio protocole, when ax25cmp has a NULL argument,
triggering a kernel panic.
Thus I patched the offending function and everything turned back to
I guess that Annaliese analysis is correct in that association of
Chromium and rose unraveled the old bug, during tasks swap (?).
I now have to convince netdev authority to accept the simple patch.
A couple of years ago it did not. However now that kernel panic occurs
systematically when opening Chromium the patch can be more easily accepted.
If not, I am thinking of adopting dkms for rose module to be
automatically re installed each time kernel updates. A package with dkms
rose module could be built, turning around "official" kernel distro.
Thanks again to you all.
