Kernel Panic While Updating Kernel

Hi, I'm experiencing kernel panics randomly while kernel updates (like when mkinitcpio gets updated or nvidia driver)
it's third time it's happening and i have no idea why it's happening.

Re: Kernel Panic While Updating Kernel

An illustration of the actual panic might be useful, is it
a) actually a panic or does the system just freeze somehow?
b) when the systemd daemon reloads?
c) only w/ the testing repo?

Re: Kernel Panic While Updating Kernel

It's a kernel panic, system completely stops and caps lock flashes.(even no loges are not complete because system doesn't sync files to filesystem after panic and logs are 1 or 2 minutes before panic occurs.

Kernel panic have happends 5 times till know

3 times while updating kernel(i thought the problem was the update)
But know it happens right after the login!
First time i logged in and connected to bluetooth then suddenly a kernel panic occurred.

And now again right after login. Before the kde splash screen goes away.

I disabled kde-unstable and core-testing and downgraded before last kernel panic.

Re: Kernel Panic While Updating Kernel

I have three guesses

First is a problem with bluetooth headphone i'm connecting becuase i'm pretty sure it was connected when kernel panics occured(but it has a very low probability)

Second is a hardware issuse and now i'm running memtest86+

Third is a problem with graphics driver(probably nvidia)

Re: Kernel Panic While Updating Kernel

Last resort: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Kdump

How long is this been going on?
There seems to be a severe memory management bug in recent kernels, see eg. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=293400 and try to add "numa=off" to the kernel parameters.

nb. that meaningful memtest86+ checks are measured in days, at least run 16h or until something shows up.

i don't think it's a hardware problem.

Re: Kernel Panic While Updating Kernel

Try the parameter.

Edit: potentially, the commit message cites a 6.6.0 oops, but it seems to have flared up only very recently
