I've got years of C, C++, and Unix experience, but zip when it comes
to Linux kernel debugging. I have a 1.2G Athlon system based on the
FIC AD11 MB with 512M of ECC RAM, ATI Radeon 8500DV. Runs rock solid
on Win2K. I installed Suse 8.2 on it and the whole system hangs once
or twice a day, it just hung right under my nose. Mouse pointer goes
away screen freezes solid. Won't respond to a telnet from outside so
its not just XFree its the whole system.
I'm willing to dive in and look for the problem, but I don't know
where to start. Are there kernel de*s or forced kernel stack
dump utilities to give one a handle on such problems so you know where
to look? A good book? Some doc I should be reading?
