A little more information is definitely needed. I get that message too,
but it's a confirmed "bug" in my case - my bios is reported having a bug
which is reported as a crash - which it really isn't (yeah, makes no
sense to me either). But there can be a tooooon of reasons. If your
crash-buddy shows up, get the details and I found if you post it to
bugzilla you find that you're usually not the only one and there's good
tips in the bugid found for how to get around the problem.
But first - update! Make sure you have the latest kernel. In the last
week, two new kernels have been released. One release was actually to
circumvent the type of problem I have so I could run with no special
parameters disabling kernel functionality (well, for others too - it was
a common issue according to bugzilla).
As a general rule, when running into something you need investigated,
saying "it fails" is never enough. You need to always provide the
details of what an error/issue is, before anyone can reach out and help.
If it's a lot of text, consider using "fpaste" or similar functionality,
and simply paste your dump there, and send the link you get back here or
to other groups where you seek help from.
Wise words of the day:
Apples have meant trouble since eden.
