CentOS 6.9: Ran update -y on my machine and rebooted.

Post by Tuthill » 2021/02/06 06:55:05

Hi all,

I ran yum update -y on my machine at first and everything seemed fine until I rebooted the damn thing. Now every kernel that I choose is leading into a kernel panic.

I tried sticking a USB with CentOS 6.9 and it also ran into a kernel panic. I'm not sure if that's because it's a bad stick or not. I believe that stick worked before but it's running into a kernel panic too.

Any ideas :?:

If even the iso image crashes then that sounds like hardware.

CentOS 6 is dead in any case so you should be migrating to a newer version, preferably about 6 months ago.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
