What's in a Kernel Oops? - Vlastimil Babka, SUSE

Feedback form is now closed.
If you have been using Linux for some time, you must have seen at least one kernel oops or panic, because sadly no software is completely free of bugs. You probably submitted the report to a mailing list (after wondering which one to use to reach the right developers), and hopefully got the bug fixed. Did you wonder, what can the report actually tell the developers? In this session, Vlastimil Babka will explain it literally line by line on few real-world examples. The next time you see a kernel oops, you should have much better idea what went wrong, who to blame, or even submit a fix yourself!
