> I'd prefer we try to figure out why your system was crashing now -- the kernel bug has not gone away just because Chromium is no longer triggering it. Working around the bug means someone else gets to run into it later -- perhaps when it's 9.0-RELEASE rather than 9-CURRENT...
i'm really sorry, but this is a problem ~ 90% of desktop users have:
1) we only have 1 computer
2) we can't access our computer via some other box via ssh or something
3) we don't have serial cables or firewire cables
so it seems in this situation a complete deadlock *cannot* be analyzed. the
idea of dumping the memory to a usb stick after a hard reboot thus seems so
attractive to users like me.
still the question is: how can we use such a complete memory dump? i don't
think it's as easy as loading it into kdb, is it?
