Bug#353047: kernel-image-2.4.27-2-386 / k7: crashes on A7N8X with Athlon XP2400+



Package: kernel-image-2.4.27-2-386
Version: 2.4.27-10sarge1

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.


Ciao Ari
