How to view older karnel panic messages


Hi,

I belive there must some option i need to enable to log all the kernel panic in linux mechine so that later on i can view those.

i initally thought if i install kdump, it will store all kernel panic in /var/crash folder, but no , its not doing that

so whats is the way to log all kernel panic in linux system for later view.

In most of the upto date versions I believe what you're looking for is in Applications>System Tools>Log File Viewer.

Everytime you boot it's logged there's an arrow to expand messages.
