Was this on the first boot after installing CentOS 6.2? Or did you install then boot then `yum update` and get a new kernel and then it happened? Or some other sequence of events? [by TrevorH]
My workstation OS has been Ubuntu 10.04 LTS for a while now. Yesterday I tried to install Mumble using Ubuntu Software Center and the installation quit after giving me some errors. When I restarted the system some time after that, I started receiving kernel panic errors when trying to boot the OS.
