|0004483||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2018-01-16 15:58||2020-12-01 10:48|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004483: Kernel Panic when Upgrading to 4.14 (2017.3) on VirtualBox 5.2.4|
|Description||When upgrading kali to latest version on VirtualBox 5.2.4, I get a kernel panic on reboot (see screenshot below).|
After upgrading, I have 3 kernels available:4.14.0-kali3, 4.8.0-kali1, 4.7.0-kali1. I can boot 4.8 and 4.7 reliably, the issue is only with 4.14.
|Steps To Reproduce||This can be reliably reproduced by upgrading to kali3 on vbox 5.2.4.|
Host: Windows 10 x64
Guest: Kali x86
||32 bit PAE|
||https://bugs.debian.org/886506 seems to be a similar report on the Debian side.|
So the issue has nothing to do with the kernel, I could reproduce it with linux 4.13 form Kali 2017.3 (i386 install) just by updating to the libc6 2.26 and updating the initrd with "update-initramfs -k all -u". Then I would have the same problem.
I looked into the glibc bugs and found out this one:
Even though it speaks of games, it looks like init from the initrd is affected in the same way because I could get the system to boot when I used the suggested work-around by adding "GLIBC_TUNABLES=glibc.tune.hwcaps=-SSE4_2" to the kernel boot command line.
In the end, the new glibc broke busybox and since busybox's sh is used in the initrd, this broke the initrd and thus the boot process.
I uploaded busybox 1.27.2-2kali1 to kali-dev, it should fix this issue shortly. I dropped -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 from the options passed to gcc since this is what is causing problems to glibc.
||The new busybox is in kali-rolling.|
