Actually this wasn't a memory problem. I think this has anything to do
with the battery clock. When I restart this O2, I alway get the wrong
date, i.e., it start from 1st January 1970. So, a long time ago, I added
a cron job to sync this machine with an ntp server.

I opened the machine, looking for a battery, like normal PC, but I
couldn't find any. So I replaced the mainboard with a spare one I have.
I moved all RAM modules from the old machine to the new one, so I am
almost sure the memory isn't the real problem.

Anyway, this is how I am trying to recompile the kernel:

# apt-get source linux-image-2.6.18-4-r5k-ip32
# apt-get build-dep linux-image-2.6.18-4-r5k-ip32
# cat >linux-2.6-2.6.18.dfsg.1/debian/arch/mips/defines
kernel-arch: mips
kernel-header-dirs: mips

initramfs: false

class: SGI IP32
longclass: SGI IP32 (O2)
# cd linux-2.6-2.6.18.dfsg.1
# cat >> debian/arch/mips/config.r5k-ip32
# dpkg-buildpackage

I think this will compile for a long time...
