[Bug 1402857] Re: crashed to text only screen, kernel panic


Given that "kernel panic" was seen on the screen, I don't think this is
a Compiz issue.  Given that both people commenting in this bug have
Broadcom cards, I suspect the problem is in bcmwl.

  crashed to text only screen, kernel panic

Status in bcmwl package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I wasn't running anything other than Firefox, which had just been
  sitting stationary for about 10 minutes and then the screen went to
  some text only page. I only remember seeing the words "Kernel panic"
  in some of the lines. It's done it twice so far today. I'm not the
  most...tech savvy...person, so I'm not really sure how to fix this?
