comment Oracle Linux 6 kernel panic boot - anything I can do?
Willdo, cheers. We've ended up nuking the disk and re-installing - not ideal, but it's got us a working system again. I'll try to keep a closer eye on what gets updated in case anything similar happens. We've gone for CentOS this time, so I know exactly what's being installed - OracleLinux starts off with too many packages for my liking. Thanks for your help

comment Oracle Linux 6 kernel panic boot - anything I can do?
@ewwwhite The same error occurs with all 4 kernel options available (I've posted these in the main question as I can't put line breaks in the comment)

comment Oracle Linux 6 kernel panic boot - anything I can do?
@ewwwhite That would make sense: I'm running diagnostics at the moment, but if they don't come up with anything I'll try one of the other 3 kernels in GRUB. I'm not sure what they are right now, but I'll post the options before trying it out.

Memtest seems fine, but I'll run a longer test soon. Currently doing some diagnostics on the disks. Thanks.

What's crazy about the kernel version? I'm not questioning you, I just don't know the difference. I believe there are 3 more options, I'll check what they are and get back to you.

comment Resizing partitions/moving /u01 oracle directory
I hadn't thought of b, thanks. That sounds neater as it moves everything. I'll check what they want to do (I know very little about Oracle)

comment Resizing partitions/moving /u01 oracle directory
Just create a folder, or create a mount point? Don't I need another logical volume to add another mount point? I've suggested to the DBAs to create/use datafiles on the /home logical volume.

comment Resizing partitions/moving /u01 oracle directory
Sorry, I thought I'd mentioned the OS. It's Oracle Linux 6, and using ext4. I believe I'm using logical volume management - there's an option for it under Webmin, at any rate. As far as I'm aware I have one physical volume, one volume group and 3 logical volumes (root, home and swap), but this may be wrong as I'm not used to linux terminology. I've mentioned moving the tablespaces, but I'm new to oracle too (small company, so I've sort of fallen into the task). How would I use a bind mount to use space from elsewhere? And I can't stop it because the machine is in use for other things.

Or would the intelligent move be to make new datafiles on /home, then copy the existing tablespaces from the datafiles on /(root) to the datafiles on /home?
