RockyLinux 8.7 updated kernel 4.18.0-425 crash

Hi there,
I recentenly installed the last kernel update, and my system crashes.
Using previous kernel, 4.18.0.-37232.1, my system still works.

I tried Ubuntu 22 live with kernel 5.18, it works.
I tried RockyLinux 9.1 live, I get a Kernel panic.

I’ve had quite the same issue in january with CentOS Stream (I should not have updated my CentOS to Stream ).
One of the reasons I migrate my system to Rocky.
My PC is very old, it is powered by a 2009 AMD Athlon II X2 250 processor.

I check RHEL 9 CPU pre requisite, it is supported.

I would like to keep that machine running another couple of years.

Screen messages 8.7

kernel offset: 0x11e00000 from 0xffffffff81000000 (relocation range: 0xffffffff80000000-0xffffffffbfffffff)

Screen messages live 9.1:
kernel offset: 0x39c00000 from 0xffffffff81000000 (relocation range: 0xffffffff80000000-0xffffffffbfffffff)
end kernel panic - not syncing: Attented to kill init! exit code=0x00007f00

That Athlon supports x86-64-v2?

On Rocky 8 you can run /lib64/ --help to see the supported levels.

The 4.18.0-425 issue … are there earlier error messages in the output?

AS I wrote, my CPU is supported:
This program interpreter self-identifies as: /lib64/

Shared library search path:
(libraries located via /etc/
/lib64 (system search path)
/usr/lib64 (system search path)

Subdirectories of glibc-hwcaps directories, in priority order:

Legacy HWCAP subdirectories under library search path directories:
x86_64 (AT_PLATFORM; supported, searched)
tls (supported, searched)
x86_64 (supported, searched)

I just mentioned it to let you know that my hardware is not recent, at the very least.

I’ve got a picture with the full screen messages, but how can I post it ?

They are listed for everybody. Note how the x86-64-v4 is in that list too.

The minimun that one should have for el9 is:

Subdirectories of glibc-hwcaps directories, in priority order:
x86-64-v2 (supported, searched)

This forum editor seems to have “Upload” icon after Bold, Italics, Link, and Code icons.

Rocky 8

Well, it seems I won’t use Rocky 9 with my actual hardware.
