I found an old PC with a AMD Athlon XP and 256 MB of RAM, so i tried to install Debian 9 and use it as a test server.
The install was completed without problems, but when i tried to boot the system from for the first time the problems started to show up. I managed to fix certain problems with searches on StackExchange or by playing with the BIOS:
- System trying to load a Floppy drive even if is not installed (disabled Floppy support in the Bios)
- "ACPI Error: Method Execution failed" (disabled ACPI on the Bios)
- "ALERT! UUID=... does not exist. Dropping to a shell!" (replaced "root=UUID=..." by "root=/" on the GRUB launch parameters)
After fixing all of those, there's still one that I'm unable to fix:
[< ca2f6c82 >] ? dump_stack+0x55/0x73
[< ca16879a >] ? panic0x94/0x1d8
[< ca06c15e >] ? do_exit+0x9fe/0xa00
[< ca06c196 >] ? SyS_exit+0x16/0x20

[< ca5b6d62 >] ? sysenter_past_esp+0x47/0x75
Kernel Offset 0x9000000 from 0xc1000000 (relocation range:0xc0000000-0xce7effff)
--[ end Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exit code 0x00000100
And after a few minutes:
random: crng init done
The partitions were created manually with this format:
- sda1 - /boot - 200mb
- sda2 - / - 39.5gb
- sda3 - swap - 2gb
Just in case, I used the network installer for x86/i386 from here.
¿What can I do to fix/bypass this kernel panic error?
