Very nice article for someone who faces oops messages for the first time.
Very well presented with good flow and simplicity.


However I feel by adding/mentioning some more pointers in this article, this article would be a complete one even for experienced kernel hackers.
e.g.,
$LINUXDIR/linux/Documentation/nmi_watchdog.txt
$LINUXDIR/linux/Documentation/serial-console.txt
Remote debugging
System freezes
making use of tools like minicom for remote logging and getting the most oops/system messages.

    Thank you.

    The advanced material is out of scope for that particular article, but I did err in not stating that, and in not pointing out resources for further research. My apologies.

    I have written this into my ideas book as well. 'Advanced Post-Mortems', anyone? :)
