[Bug 1446724] Re: server is stable under older kernel (3.2.0-29.46), but crashes under newer kernels


I can't send the log files using "apport-collcet 1446724" as instructed
by Brad Figg because the text based browser on my server cannot
authenticate launchpad login. But it doesn't matter since the crashes
are not logged by system logs anyway.

  server is stable under older kernel (3.2.0-29.46), but crashes under
  newer kernels

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My PC is stable running Ubuntu Server 12.04.5 LTS using the old kernel
  3.2.0-29.46. But it crashes whenever I tried to update the kernel to
  3.2.0-65.99 or higher (including 14.04.2 LTS). So somewhere between
  3.2.0-29.46 and 3.2.0-65.99, changes to the kernel caused my PC to
  crash (note: I have not tried kernels older than 3.2.0-65.99, so I
  don't know the exact version that started to cause the crash).

  I think this is likely a hardware compatibility issue since I could
  not find any system logs regarding the crashes.

  My PC is very old (Compaq Evo D510 SFF/07E4h, BIOS 68602 v2.14
  08/15/2002), so I am not sure if this bug is worth troubleshooting.

  In the meantime, I am happy with the performance of my PC running
  3.2.0-29.46. But if anyone is interested in troubleshooting this bug,
  please let me know.
