In case you are experiencing a kernel crash (oops) and have already checked your hardware, you should report what kernel says to the console to Bugzilla. Sometimes kernel crashes so badly that syslogd is not working and what kernel says it never written to a file. If this is the case, you have to catch what kernel says. There are several ways possible.


If kernel backtrace is not long enough there are chances that it can fit into a single screen. In that case, you can just make a photo of the kernel crash screen and attach it to the bug report. If you do not have a camera, you still can carefully write down (using a piece of paper and a pen, that is) what you see on the screen, and later type it into the bug report.
