After a recent dnf update (one day last week) I've noticed that my Fedora 23 is crashing. This is very unusual.

I typically leave my desktop running all the time. This has never been a problem until the recent system update that included a kernel update. Now, the system is locked (crashed) after I leave it for a while.

What do I need to do to report my system configuration? I'd like to make a contribution to the stability of Fedora. Can someone please describe the process? My guess is there are log files that I can send in to a bugzilla system. but I'm not certain.

When you boot, Grub gives you the option of booting the current kernel, or an earlier one. In fact, by default it keeps the three most recent kernels to give you the choice between the latest and the two most recent kernels before that, and this is why. Next time you boot, instead of just hitting Enter to start the boot process, or letting it pick the newest one by default, use your arrow keys to select the next most recent kernel instead and see if that works. If so, you have a running system and can worry about finding out why the newest update doesn't work for you. If not, you should also have a third option (other than rescue) that you can try.
