Weird crash problem
 
Hi,

I have a CentOS 4.5 running kernel 2.6.9-55.0.9 and I have a weird problem with it.

From time to time, it just crash. If I look at the server, all I see is a black screen and the num lock and scroll lock lights are flashing on the keyboard.

The server cannot be pinged or accessed remotely.

Any idea what is wrong?

Thanks!

What are the last messages in /var/log/syslog file predecessing a crash?

I don't see a syslog file in /var/log.

After a search for syslog, I found the following:

/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Sys/Syslog
/usr/libexec/webmin/caldera/syslog
/usr/libexec/webmin/mscstyle3/syslog
/usr/libexec/webmin/syslog
/usr/share/doc/ruby-libs-1.8.1/ext/syslog
/var/lock/subsys/syslog
/etc/logrotate.d/syslog
/etc/sysconfig/syslog
/etc/rc.d/init.d/syslog
/etc/webmin/syslog


Which one should I look in?

What files are in /var/log ? /var/log/messages perhaps ?
