Bug Description

Everytime ksysguardd is started, it causes a kernel oops. Unable to reproduce this on armel system or on a UP armhf system.

Doesn't that also affect the kernel itself? I'd argue that the kernel should not go boom from a userspace app....

Tobin Davis (gruemaster) wrote :

Possibly. I'll add it to the bug for the kernel team to look over.

can you reproduce it with 3.2.0-1411-14?

Yes. Just reproduced with the kubuntu beta2 release candidate image on omap4.
