Another crash on the same machine:

RIP [<address>] rt_run_flush+0x81/0xb8
 RSP <address>
CR2: address
 <0>Kernel panic - not syncing: Faltal excption

Same kernel panic, different function.

I have unloaded the sata_via and libata kernel modules based on a post I found Googleing for this problem.

Yet another crash.

RIP [<address>] __dentry_open+0x7e/0x1dc
 RSP <address>
CR2: address
 <0>Kernel panic - not syncing: Faltal excption

Any ideas on how to debug this?

I think I have figured out the problem. I disabled the onboard VIA Velocity network card and replaced it with a Netgear 10/100 (tulip) in a PCI slot.

The system has now been running for 6 days.

The problem is either a bad hardware or a bad driver. Since I had random crashes on another Abit AV8 running CentOS 5, I think it is a driver problem.

I continued to have kernel panics even after disabling the onboard NIC, but they were less frequent. I had pretty much given up on finding the cause of the kernel panics.

I have the same motherboard on a workstation and last week I tried to install Ubuntu 8.04 and ran into frequent crashes. In the process of debugging the issue I installed the latest BIOS: 28 (5/7/2006). It cured the crashes.

I have installed the new BIOS on the server and have switched back to using the onboard NIC. So far no crashes.
