is the Oops systematic ? (every time you do the upgrade), or sporadic ? in the
second case you might have a hardware problem. possibly memory. Try checking
it with memtest86+ (apt-get install memtest86+)

If it is systematic, as you are running an older kernel there is probably no
point in sending this in as a kernel problem. Upgrading is your best bet.


What you could do on a short notice is change the kernel you use from the
generic one to one of the specific kernels for your processor.

This is an AMD Athlon 3000 box running linux-image-2.6-amd64-generic kernel

Etch has these other two kernel :


the first one runs best on Intel, the other one on AMD.

 linux-image-2.6.12-10-amd64-k8, then? I'll give it a shot. Many thanks,
