How to Analyze Linux Kernel Panic Which Take Place While Running Linux Application ?

Question asked by Peter Amond on May 3, 2018
Latest reply on May 3, 2018 by igorpadykov

Dear All,

 

I'm getting kernel panics while running linux application on my custom hardware design. But another custom hardware which is similar to this can run this linux application without any problem. I did the memory calibration and stress app test for this board. But there was not any issue related to memory. So how can I debug this to clarify whether this is hardware or software problem. I could debug kernel and uboot using JTAG properly. But how can I pinpoint the issue for this kernel panic while running certain application ?

 

Here is the panic message (LOG)
