Logging kernel panic msgs to another system


Hi,

I'm running FC16 x86_64 and am getting kernel panic messages and separately a trace just before the system reboots. NONE of these messages are appearing in the console logs. Sigh.

Only one of the systems I have has a serial port.

I seem to recall a way to configure the kernel line in the grub config file to point to another system so I can capture these messages. I seem to be unable to find the doc for this process. As I recall, on the receiving system, you run netcat with some options.

Does anyone have the URL handy or know how this is done?

Regards and thanks ahead of time for your help.

George...

You mean netconsole: Documentation/networking/netconsole.txt?
