Bug#353047: kernel-image-2.4.27-2-386 / k7: crashes on A7N8X with Athlon XP2400+
System has been running stable for at least 1 year under kernel 2.4.23 with
xfs patch (knoppix kernel) (but with ext2 filesystem).
The original knoppix system packages were down/up-graded to debian stable
(sarge), except of the kernel-image.
After upgrading to kernel-image-2.4.27-2-k7 recently, the system hangs after
1 to 15 minutes irregulary, especially while playing sound (konsole, kde -
often causing immediate crash.) or working in X with kde.
There are no core-dumps and messages in /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog .
Same problem with kernel-image-2.4.27-2-386.
Relaxing BIOS Memory timings doesn't help, as well as removing 512MB of RAM,
which had been mounted into the original system 1 year after buying. The
memory has been running stable with the old kernel version.
It looks like a hardware problem, I changed power supply with no result.
When booting the old kernel 2.4.23 , the system is running stable again.
I have'nt found any similar problems on the net.
If you have any ideas for further testing (I don't have anymore) I will try.
