this line tell you xx.xx.xx.xx (SRC) is trying to talk to xx.xx.xx.xx(DST) from port 53 (DNS) to port 59583 (unassigned port).
Your computer is probably running a DNS server and this line show us that your server is answering to a client request.

I doubt this has something to do about crashing.

I do not quite understand what it is that you say your computer did.

Did the machine "just shut down, normally, all by itself, with no one asking it to do so?"

Did it "crash?" "Hang?" "Die?"

Did it "stop responding to the network, but the console is still okay?

What ...

As I said _earlier_ those message have nothing to do about the crash.

This tell us your computer is trying to talk to a SMTP (mail) server... I dont see how this could have something to do with the crash.

hi Guys !!
this is a line from /var/log/messages

Aug 5 09:01:56 server01 kernel: GEN-DUMP: IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=00:c0:9f:38:23:de:00:d0:02:76:c8:00:08:00 SRC=xx.xx.xx.xx DST=xx.xx.xx.xx LEN=55 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=60 ID=43424 DF PROTO=UDP SPT=53 DPT=59583 LEN=35

MAC=00:c0:9f:38:23:de:00:d0:02:76:c8:00:08:00
is this a MAC addr of source or destination , generally MAC having 6 field, if it is a combination of source and destination MAC , then why 4 more values are there ?
any comment or suggestion ?

No clue, but it's just the usual, there is always a useless "00" field at the end of end MAC adress in kernel log I believe.

Anyways, as I told you earlier, your firewall logs (because THESE are firewall log) have NOTHING to do about crash. All these logs are quite useless if you are trying to find the cause of a crash.
