I was playing a game on Steam and all a sudden I got a kernel panic. I manually shut down the computer and booted back into Linux Mint 17.1 (Cinnamon) 64-bit, and went to go check through my log files in
/var/log/, but I couldn't find any references or any kind of messages relating to the kernel panic that happened.
It's strange why it never dumped the core or even made any note of it into the log files. How can I make sure that a core is always dumped in case a kernel panic happens again? Doesn't make any sense why nothing was logged when a kernel panic happened. Looking around on Google, people suggest to read through
/var/log/Xorg.log etc… but nothing. Not even in
.Xsession-errors file either.
I could always take a photo of the screen when and if it happens again, but I just want to make sure that I can get it to dump the core and create a log file on a kernel panic.
