kernel panics when wifi connects to a network and X running

Can yo try to boot and don't move the mouse? For me it crashes only when I try to move the mouse. X will load normally if i dont move it at all. Also it crashes with any application that utilizes the pointing device. For example I can start my pc without X at all. If I enable gpm and move the mouse it will crash.

Re: 2.6.30 kernel panic

I don't have problem with mouse or another usb device, just X and wifi.
without X, and gpm + netcg running, computer runs well
X without netcfg, same things
X+netcfg makes the kernel panics
netcfg is for the example, I tried without it, but with same result.

Re: 2.6.30 kernel panic

Hi,

I have a similar issue here, as everyone, downgrade to 2.6.29 solve the issue.
I realise that it is  only when I try to connect to encrypted network that I get the issue (WEP at least).

I usually use wicd but i try NetworkManager and get the same issue.

Here is my network card and the module I use:

02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8187SE Wireless LAN Controller (rev 22)
rtl8187se

Re: 2.6.30 kernel panic

Just an update to clarify the problem that i had.

No problem with USB anything. I am using a usb mouse a external harddrive through eSATA and and SDHC card in.

I now am using netcfg with wifi-select and I don't have the kernel panic that I got with WICD

and agin I have a Intel WiFi 5300 in my HP elitebook 8530w

I have the same problem with rtl8187se (msi wind 100). When i connect USB wireless adapter (zyxel) kernel works fine. IMHO rtl8187 module bug.

Re: 2.6.30 kernel panic

I also have the same problem with my MSI Wind.  Definitely seems to be tied to wireless.  I get a kernel panic whether I use wicd or manually connect to a wireless AP.

I also have another atom box running as a server that I was getting some kernel panics on as well, but it's wired, not wireless.  The kernel panics seem to have stopped on that machine, however, they only happened when I had a wireless keyboard and or a bluetooth mouse adapter plugged in so I wonder if it might be connected to usb devices?

Is the rtl8187se wireless module just connected to a usb header internally on the wind?

For confirmation:
I also had that kernel panic after today's update. Kernel downgrade solved the problem.

That's true , realtek wifi (rtl8187se) don't work when i connect to AP with kernel 2.6.30 . Intel or Zyxel wifi works fine.

Re: 2.6.30 kernel panic

I don't remember where but in another thread somebody said they had good luck with 2.6.30 and the rtl8187se driver that is AUR.

Re: 2.6.30 kernel panic

Hi,

I have the same problem with my zyxel card with a Texas Instruments chip:

00:0b.0 Network controller: Texas Instruments ACX 111 54Mbps Wireless Interface
    Subsystem: Tekram Technology Co.,Ltd. Device 1612
    Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 5
    Memory at db020000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
    Memory at db000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128K]
    Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2
    Kernel modules: acx

It uses the tiacx 20080210-10 driver from core.
Because I also have a wired connection, I 'solved' the problem by disabling the acx module in rc.conf

Re: 2.6.30 kernel panic

A temporary solution for those using the MSI Wind U100 is to disable wireless using Fn+F11 (the light near the track pad should turn off), before actually booting arch through your boot loader.  Then after arch has booted turn the wireless back on and restart or start the network daemon (so for me that is '/etc/rc.d/net-profiles restart' , but for others it may be '/etc/rc.d/network restart' ,...it all really depends on what you are using to manage your network connection).

Re: 2.6.30 kernel panic

this solution also results in kernel panic.
using rtl8187se-patched from aur works for me.

Re: 2.6.30 kernel panic

Yep, as tuxce said, the kernel panic comes as soon as you try to connect to a network, doesn't matter if it happens during boot or afterwards. 

The patched module is working great for me as well.  Thanks tuxce.

I get the same error when I attach a certain usb device (a x10-rf receiver with lirc and lirc_atiusb modules). Wonder if this might be an issue with some usb devices in general ?

I also have an atiusb receiver that causes this type of kernel panic on device insert. I haven't tried it in my main machine since upgrading to 2.6.30-ARCH, but my media box presents this symptom like clockwork.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one, which means that this particular bug is more likely to be fixed by someone other than me. smile

It worked for me too!!!

No more kernel-panic related to wifi card. Module rtl8187se

Thanks for everyone who tried to fix this problem!!! Arch community rocks!!

Re: 2.6.30 kernel panic

With the most recent kernel upgrade my wireless quit working.  The wlan0 interface wasn't even showing up.  I noticed that the patched version wasn't in AUR anymore.  I removed the rtl8187se-patched and reverted back to "rtl8187se" in the modules section of rc.conf and it works perfectly now.
