SubjectKernel Debugging Documentation
Back in May I wrote a quite estensive documentation about all the
possible/best ways to debug the Linux Kernel for a talk/tranining that I
did in San Jose in May. I find now the time to clean it up and to upload
since I think it could result useful to everybody dealing with kernel
developement.

ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/andrea/talks/english/2000/kdebug-may-2000-20000907.tar.gz

It addresses
MCORE/LKCD/KDB/KGDB/NMI-watchdog/TRACER/IKD/PRINTK/BUG/OOPS/KMSGDUMP and
many other issues (simptom/realbug as well).

They were the digital slides for the talk, so while writing them I
expected to ingegrate them with speach, but they should be readable also
standalone.

They're written in MGP (MagiPoint, not that I like it too much but
kpresenter wasn't that powerful at that time). A postscript is included
into the tarball as well (they should be easily readable with `gv` with
antialiasing enabled).

I'd say it's a _must_ read for any kernel developer (feel free to announce
it on other places as well if you think it's good idea of course).

Hope you find them useful, have fun.

Andrea

PS. If you have patches for the document send them to me and I'll
integrate them. Kurt just sent me a 1000 lines patch to
correct my english errors in the original version :))
