I do not love thee, kernel-3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64

I've been having a lot of issues with video, for example. However, this
one... I have a user with a Dell R730. I install kernel and kernel devel,
and the rest of the full update, and rebooted.

Nope. 100% kernel panic, right around the time it switches root. I even
rebuilt the initramfs, nope.

And speaking of kernel panics, has *anyone* ever considered that all the
data dumped to the console during one results in NOT BEING ABLE TO READ
ANYTHING BUT THE LAST 24 or less, mostly less, lines?

mark, frustrated, removed that kernel

Ah, the good old days of running a VAXcluster with hardcopy consoles.

Surely you do realize there are SEVERAL other display options besides
just the video console, right?

You can use kdump, you can use a serial console .. you can use google
and the search term 'capture kernel oops' to get more than 10 full
search page results on how to capture the output of a kernel oops.

mark, if you have kdump enabled, you can see the full log in
/var/crash (after next boot).
