I've been offline for a few days because it seems my motherboard is fried. I'm
sending this message from another machine.
The really WEIRD thing - I had just recompiled a Linux kernel, then rebooted,
got a "kernel panic". Tried rebooting again into single-user mode, but kernel
panic again. Next attempt to reboot into the old kernel, but this time
nothing at all - no video, the motherboard just died.
My question - is there any possibility that a misconfigured kernel could harm
the hardware? Or is it just a strange coincidence that "kernel panic" was
followed by real hardware failure?
