Thread: Getting occasional kernel panic (I believe)

    Default Getting occasional kernel panic (I believe)

    The past two weeks, 3 times my computer has completely frozen (nothing responds and the image is frozen on screen) and the caps lock key's light will be blinking. I think it's a kernel panic but I'm not sure what's causing it.

    How do i diagnose what's causing it? What do I look at? Commands? Log files?

    openSUSE 42.1
    Linux 4.7.2-1
    KDE
    Lenovo X1 Carbon 4th gen

    Sorry don't know about Intel Graphics Check the posts for possible problems with the newer modes. Seems there is a fix by modifying the xorg files

    Don't know if this is the problem but Intel GPU seem to require this at least on some hardware

    If that causes an issue, how can I start up and remove it?
