    Hullo,

    Geeky Monday: a short tutorial explaining how to handle Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS error when booting Kdump kernel, including fixing the Kdump command line and init script, memory allocations under /proc, editing the kernel configuration with additional modules and recreating initrd image. Enjoy if you can.

    Cheers,

    Mrk,

    thanks for that article. However, I'm afraid it's over my head ;) But certainly useful for hardcore experts.

    It's not that difficult, don't be falsely humble :)
