I am trying to install OPNFV with compass4nfv, using a vm deployment on server running Ubuntu 14.04 , and I am facing problems with the deployment. I have edited the network.yml and dha.yml files and am using the deployment command provided in the installation guide here

The scripts work until they actually start installing the iso file. Once they start installing, the VM ends with the message “Kernel Panic - not syncing: Fatal exception”. I have tried to deploy with multiple different iso files and am getting the same error. The terminal session shows me that the os installation times out and displays the following message: “os install time out” . The problem is that everything seems to be working fine until it tries installing. I have not been able to find a similar problem in the ask.opnfv page.

The terminal message is as follows [I've added a little extra so that it can be seen what possibly triggers the errors]:

+ sudo virsh start compass
Domain compass started
+ exit_status=0
+ '[' 0 '!=' 0 ']'
+ wait_ok 500
+ set +x
wait_compass_ok enter
os install time outd: 99%

The error message on the VM is as follows

[      4.851046]   RSP <ffff88007fb63c48>
[      4.871491] ---[  end trace e8c52e7125b0e75b  ]----
[      4.872624] Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception

I was wondering if I was getting the wrong iso file. I have tried using the stable release iso file from here. I have also tried using various iso files from here with no luck. All the documentation I've seen refers to a file called compass.iso so I was a little concerned that I was getting the wrong iso file.

Thanks for your help and please let me know if there is more information that I can provide.

I've had kernel panics earlier, due to lack of allocated RAM/ Hard disk space. Try allocating more RAM first? If that doesn't work, allocate more space?

Try to download the ISO and attach it. Even i used the same link to download ISO. . Try to checkout to stable version. use: cd compass4nfv, git checkout brahmaputra.1.0, git branch -a

Try using sudo su, apt-get install openssh-server -y, apt-get install python-dev -y, apt-get install libevent-dev -y, apt-get install python-setuptools, apt-get install libpython2.7-dev -y, apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libffi-dev python-dev –y, easyinstall greenlet, easyinstall gevent, apt-get install python-pip -y, pip install pyopenssl ndg-httpsclient pyasn1, pip install --upgrade ndg-httpsclient, apt-get install ipmitool -y, service openipmi start, apt-get install git -y, apt-get update.

It doesn't seem to be working, the kernel panic still occurs. I did checkout to the stable branch as you recommended, and left the old branch I was working on. I updated/installed all the packages and dependencies that you recommended. Any other ideas?
