Good morning,

I am new to Linux and started using fedora 14 for some months.

Since last evening, I am getting the error that my Linux kernel got corrupted or something happened with it and I have to send report to some url.

Now I don’t know whether it is the fake message due to some virus or original message by the operating system.

The actual error is as under.

Your system had a kernel failure
There is diagnostic information available for this
failure. Do you want to submit this information to
the www.kerneloops.org website for use by the
Linux kernel developers?

Hi there,

I am successfully practicing Linux using a live cd of Fedora 11. After getting to know how operating Linux works, I decided to move it to hard disk, so that I can use it as a primary operating system on my personal computer. The configuration of my personal computer is INTEL Pentium iv 3.4 GHz with hyper threading technology and 1 GB of ram and 320 GB of hard disk and NVIDIA graphic card.

The installation every time begins smoothly and runs till completion of copying installation files to the hard disk. After that, I got the following error and everything goes finished without a successful installation.


An error occurred mounting device /dev/sda1 as /:mount

Hi all Hi all,

My operating system on my PC is Windows XP and Microsoft Virtual PC 2007. I installed Fedora 9 and when I ran the program, I got the below error message.

“Fedora 9: An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered. The virtual machine will reset now.”

Any idea what this might mean?

I tried installing Fedora 9 again. Yet this error message seems to appear. Is it the Fedora version that must be faulty? Or is my Virtual Memory playing up? How do I know for sure what the problem might be and how best do I sort this out?

When I click the reset button and run the program again. I still get this error. Should I use a newer version Fedora? Is there one existing that I can download?
