kerneloops: how can I find what happened?

This morning, when I logged in, I was greeted with a friendly "Your system had a kernel failure" message from the kerneloops applet, something I've not seen before on my laptop, which has been running Debian 5.0 for over a month now. I can see in /var/log/messages that 9 kernel oopses were submitted to, but will these errors have been logged anywhere?

I have tried searching through /var/log/kern.log, and I can see a few error messages, but exactly the same errors were also logged yesterday. I have also tried the man page and /etc/kerneloops.conf and not found anything informative.

Perhaps this utility may help you find what you seek? I realize it's a MAN page, but I believe you're bright enough to take it from here. ; ) Wish I could be of more help, but I'm not familiar enough with Kerneloops or Debian.
