I am having random reboots on my 5.3 system
even using GENERIC.

I am wondering, what do I have to do to enable some sort of debug/crash
log...I dont want the thing to just reboot w/o telling me why.

When this happens, there are no logs...just a reboot and then the FSCK.

I believe I need to compile some options into a kernel to trap this, but 

Thanks in advance guys :)
