    Hello all,

    Some truly super-geek stuff for you:

    I have written a step-by-step tutorial explaining how to configure the Linux Kernel Crash Dump (LKCD) utility to collect Linux kernel crash dumps locally and over network.

    This is the first in a series of articles about Linux system debugging, which will include numerous other system tools, like Kdump, crash, lcrash, gdb, strace, ltrace, scope, objdump, and others.

    The article also includes the tutorial in PDF form available for free download. The PDF can be found toward the end of the article.

    Comments, suggestions and typo fixes are welcome.

    Regards,
    Mrk
