http://ubuntuforums.org – I just had 2 instances of a kernel panic in what appears to be a replicable event, at least on my machine. I'm running the 64-bit version of Xubuntu 11.10, with the Ralink wireless driver source from the Ralink website, built and installed locally. I'm currently sharing my wired connection with a Windows XP machine that I'm setting up for a friend. On that machine I've been downloading stuff successfully enough, except on this occassion when I tried to download evince for Windows via the Gnome site. When I clicked on the link in Firefox on the Windows machine, the Ubuntu machine blew out. (Hardware)
