A `dmesg` before the crash would at least tell us whether there's problematic hardware/drivers in use. Even though it's not taken at the moment of the crash doesn't mean it's worthless. Has the machine got a serial port? Maybe you could hook that up to a logging terminal emulator on another computer via a null-modem cable? (It may need to be a PCI(e)-connected serial port rather than USB, not many OSes support serial console over USB due to the complexities of USB itself.) Maybe you could configure syslogd(8) to send its logs via UDP to a syslog on another computer? It might not catch the very last log messages, but maybe might capture enough? -- Stuart Longland (aka Redhatter, VK4MSL) I haven't lost my mind... ...it's backed up on a tape somewhere.
