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).
