Backtrace shows that kernel crashed inside AppArmor function. Probably this is AppArmor bug.

What is a profile set? Where can I find it?
Please give me the folder/file name and I will upload it to you.

Your profile set is the text files of the profiles on your system. They are found in /etc/apparmor.d/

Hi ar,

Unfortunately, this contains the contents of /etc/apparmor/ rather than
/etc/apparmor.d/ (note the trailing '.d') which contains some
configuration settings for apparmor but not the actual policy itself.
Running "tar -C /etc/ -cvzf apparmor.d.tar.gz apparmor.d" will collect
the apparmor policies into a tarball to attach.

Thanks for your patience!

Eugene,

I have not been able to reproduce or track this bug down, have you seen it again, and if so is it reliably reproducable? Also could you try this under the newer Karmic kernel?

thanks

Happened for me in karmic. Load average went through the roof but eventually came back. Afterwards keyboard won't work in gnome-terminal but does in other applications. Mouse works.

For me, the trigger was starting VirtualBox.

Matt,

sounds like virtual box crashing some where around when it does its input grab, I have experienced virtual machines grabbing input and not returning before too, can you try to replicate and then from a terminal run

apport-collect -p linux-image-`uname -r` 367499

it might be an idea to have the above command entered in the terminal in advance and just use the virtual keyboard to hit enter with the mouse.

thanks

It seems that you're thinking that VirtualBox is running Ubuntu. I'm running Ubuntu as the host system and WinXP under VirtualBox and losing the keyboard under Ubuntu. USB keyboard (and mouse) if that helps.

I will try and run the command next time it happens.

John Johansen (jjohansen) wrote :

Matt,

Actually I assumed Ubuntu was the host and that the crash was happening when the virtual box VM crashed/faulted in some form when grabbing input from X. I have seen loss of input devices (mouse and/or keyboard) like this under both virtual box and VMWare.

Matt,

if you encounter this bug again can you please run

apport-collect -p linux 367499

thanks

Will do. I have it in a script ready to run. Unfortunately (for debugging purposes) I have seen the symptoms (slowdown, no keyboard) but haven't been able to do anything other than press the reset button on the front. I can't even ssh in from another machine as it won't connect.
