Re: RHEL 6.1 "Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!"



Since I am still doing the setup, I reboot often.
I have seen kernel panic message several times "Kernel panic - not syncing:
Attempted to kill init!".  If I powecycle the server through DRAC, it boots
fine.  So even the kernel panic is intermittent.
