So my new Linux dual-boot install (Mint 17.2 & XP) has been running great for over 2 weeks now, and I am really enjoying it. Lot's of new things to learn but that will come with time. Anyway, my question is simply a matter of curiosity:
I have never seen it, nor do I ever want to see it, but when Linux crashes, what does it look like? Does a “blue screen” appear as in Windows, does it just freeze, does everything just stop? Also, does a log get created to explain the (possible) problem?
I'm in no hurry for the answer so please help the others who have actual problems.
