My Redhat 7.3 server Keeps crashing


Hi,

I have installed Redhat 7.3 on my Server at home and had nothing but lockups since. I had Redhat 7.1 before for over a year with out a single lockup..Now it happens every 2 days ???
I can't see what is on screen because it's not connected to a monitor..

Is there a way to find out what is happening with my box...
/var/log/messages don't show any indications ..and /var/crash files are empty ..

Any help will be appreciated...

I fixed the crashing issue... It turned out that Kernel shipped with RedHat 7.3 2.4.18-3-smp when used with ext3 file system and raid setup will panic and crash every now and then ..The fix was to upgrade to 2.4.18-5-smp kernel posted on Redhat Web site..
