Re: still trouble with the NSLU2

Thank you for all the replies, I really appreciate.

@Mark: I don't think it can be alignement errors,  because  such  errors
would appear on all NSLU2 running Debian, while I seem to  be  the  only
one to have such problems. Thank you anyway for the suggestion.

That sounds as a more likely issue. Is there anyway I can test  the  RAM
on the NSLU2? If it turns out that it  is  broken,  I  suppose  this  is
something that it is hard to fix, isn't it?

I see. What should I test?  that  the  nominal  voltage  is  proper  and
stable?  However,  if  that  was  the  case,  the  machine  would   fail
erratically, I believe, while it appears to fail quite deterministically
(upon an apt-get upgrade, for example).

Thanks again
