Re: [vox-tech] Kernel Panic

I recommend that anyone using a Linux distro subscribe to as many of the 
distro mailing lists (particularly those that mention security) as 
he/she/it feels may apply to their particular situation.  If too many are 
subscribed, you can always unsubscribe

They serve not only as a sanity check, yep, somebody else has the same 
problem, it ain't just me, but keep you up to date on other distro 

I am an old suse user (currently Slackware) and have not unsubscribed from 
all of suse's lists yet.  (sometimes make for interesting reading).  I had 
sent the msg I forwarded to kmail trash about 5 minutes before I a link was 
established between um, suse 9.2, and kernel panic.  was able to rescue it 
before session end.  

Merry Christmas to all!
