Beagle BOARD kernel panic after a couple minutes

I have a couple units in the field that use the Beagle BOARD to control a remote device. Now, two of them have started to get a kernel panic after a 3-5 minutes of running fine. I don’t have a console log file, but a screen copy. here’s what I see :

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000

Internal error: Oops 5 [#1] SMP ARM

Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt

If there is any specific info from the trace that could be helpful, let me know and I’ll type it in.

This is running Ubuntu 13.04 (GNU/Linux 3.7.10-x13 armv71)

We do occasionally have to fsck the SD card, but this has already been done.
Does anyone know what could be causing this?



For what it’s worth, your message was sent 3 times, Google doesn’t send you a copy because it assumes you know you sent it.

Have you been updating things? If not, the troubleshooting steps are in your hands, which makes it easier. Replace the SD card with a new one and see if it works. SD cards only allow so many writes and then you get fun errors and unpredictable behavior.

Hope that is helpful.
