[Bug 1505558] Re: invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP - kernel BUG at inode.c


Rudolf Körner, as per
an update to your computer's buggy and outdated BIOS is available
(1.35). If you update to this following
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate does it change anything?

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful. As well, you don't
have to create a new bug report.

Once the BIOS is updated, if the problem is still reproducible:
1) Please provide the output of the following terminal command (not perform an apport-collect):
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date
2) Please make a comment specifically advising on if there was an improvement or not.
3) Please mark this report Status Confirmed. If it's not reproducible, please mark this as Invalid.

Thank you for your understanding.

  invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP - kernel BUG at inode.c

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Description:	Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS
  Release:	14.04
    Installed: 3.16.0-50.67~14.04.1

  At or during accessing the filesystem on an external USB drive, the kernel bug (see below) occured.
  Afterwards, an "ls" did not react, i.e. hangs until closing the terminal.
  The drive itself seems to be ok, since it passes a SMART check.
  The filesystem was created by using the standard Ubuntu 14.04 encryption mechanism (LUKS).
