Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode

  • I have this message ( attached ), when i tried to run pfsense image on my debian amd64  kvm host.

    This image is running fine really on a regular PC,
    but when i copy the image and try to run this on one of our HP DL-160 server,
    it always crash on booting with these messages…
    i tried to set hw.mca.enabled=0 like some other user posted in the forum,
    but no effect ...
    host = debian wheezy 64bit
    guest = pfsense 2.1 32bit.

    Anyone encountered similar situation before ?

    Pls let me know if you need more info..

  • I've encountered a fatal trap 12 with a pfsense kernel running under xen.

    You need to provide the trace information (at the db> prompt, just type "trace" and hit enter), to see what was on the call stack at the time it trapped the fatal error.

    That will tell you which function threw the error, and be the first step to finding a solution.  Here's the thread for my fatal trap 12 - different circumstances and thus likely a different problem, but it has an example of the debug trace.
