comment Diagnosing a Kernel Panic
Hi Skizz, first you need to establish if your kernel is configured to 'capture' a crash dump. For ubuntu, research "dumputils". Also the 'panic string' might be in the syslog (/var/log/messages) - there should be a 'stack trace' - this will help narrow things down.
