[Bug 1548961] Re: BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffc90005459200


don lesniakowski, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu

As per https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8Z68V_LX/HelpDesk_Download/ an
update to your computer's buggy, insecure, and outdated BIOS is
available (4105). 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.

Also, 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.

  BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffc90005459200

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've been led to believe this bug is related to my pc's bios.  Perhaps a conflict with GRUB?  I don't know enough to say.  If you come across this bug report and understand what the problem might be, PLEASE send me a note to briefly explain and suggest what the logical remedy is.  I have had this problem ongoing for over a year, it only is a problem some times, I suspect whenever the update process tries to update the bootloader?
  Thank you.
