[Bug 585765] Re: Ubuntu 10.04 random freezes

In the hope to collect some useful information, I installed the linux-
crashdump package.  When the problem occurs, the system is now restarted
(instead of freezing).  After rebooting, there is a ~30MB file called
linux-image-2.6.32-23-generic.0.crash in /var/crash.  The apport tool
tells me that a kernel crash has occurred and asks whether I want to
send a report.  If I try to do this, it sends ~30MB somewhere
(presumably the crash file), but then tells me that a server error
occurred and that the data could not be sent successfully.

I'd really like to help, but I do not have the time to study how kexec,
crashdump, etc. work in detail.  Is there an easy way to get at least
some information out of these tools?  Is there a "Debugging kernel
crashes in Ubuntu"-Howto somewhere?
