Hi,

I have installed one kernel extension, after which sometimes machine hangs. Not easily reproducible. I have got the kernel dump from my customer which he generated by NMI after hang. Now how should I analyse this core fine to find which thread caused hang?

I am new to kernel programming. Any suggestion would be of help. Thanks.

Additionally this book although a bit older still has lots of good information in it
