I had 2 hard lock-up with newly ext3 enabled system.
I observed some irregularity with X start up so I thought it was new X.
Console where I run startx become white. I have 3dfx on cheep SMP box
(Abit BP6). SMP keep popping up interrupt error, anyway.
Nice thing is rebooting is much faster with exi3 after hard lock up like
this which requires brutal power-off button action.
Oh, I use standard kernel-image-2.4.17-686-smp
