Re: Random segfaults (was: Hup,hup Debian AMD64, Hup, hup)

Check your hd cables, apt is pretty strange to segfault...

For the CPU (x2 3800+) i cannot say, although some other OS that unfortunately
can offer me Elder Scrolls Oblivion (...) is not having any problems (not of
this kind anyway)

For the memory (4x512MB), i did  have one faulty module, i returned it, got a
new one and system was sweet, plus memtest86 doesn't reveal a problem (this
doesn't mean that its OK, but its a rather slim case)

For the power supply its a very robust Tagan, 480W and it was taking the heat
fine for many months now. Also, Dutch power company has never caused me any
trouble or reason to worry.

My system is as cool as it can get with stock CPU fan, CPU under 30 Celsius,
case under 40 Celsius, so no overheating problem too.

I'll start checking all those things the best I can (memory is the easiest to
check me thinks, at least at a per-module basis), but I'm almost sure its not
my HW.

Thank you very much for your replies and time,
