This boot produces a stack dump but I have no system available to record this information since it has panic'd. Are there files where this info is recorded? I would be happy to provide their contents.

Can you take a picture of the backtrace and attach that?

I hope this works for you. Note that the last line is missing. It contained what looks like a trace-id, no system calls present.

It seems to me that storing this information somewhere on the system would be a great idea. I know that resources are VERY limited during a panic... maybe in swap? Syslog is open at this time I think but FS integrity might be an issue. Maybe leaving a buffer around and just a single write would work?

Anything else I can do to help here?

Um... you attached a text file that says "JPEG of panic screen..." not the actual jpeg file.

I hope this file makes it this time... Sigh...

Comment 5 George R. Goffe 2015-02-17 18:33:48 UTC
I don't see any jpeg... What's happening here? Bugzilla broken? The file is a plain jpeg.


Comment 6 George R. Goffe 2015-02-17 18:37:27 UTC
I see the problem. The file is too big. Bugzilla has a bug too... Rejecting the attachment without any indication that it was rejected. Argh!

Is there a blind ftp site I can use?

Upgrade to 3.18.7-200.fc21.x86_64 via "yum update --skip-broken" and reboot seems to have fixed the panic.
