I've started to experience "random" lockups with my debian system. It seems to be similar to this problem in Suse:
I tried that barrier=none remedy, and on reboot, the drive didn't mount, with an "unknown option" error.
So what's happening to my machine is after a while - I've seen it anywhere from 5 minutes to a few days - it locks up *hard*, and for some reason the Caps lock and Scroll Lock lights on the keyboard turn on. No X, no sshd, nothing, so I can't get in from another box to see what's going on. I haven't seen anything in the syslog either. I had a slightly older debian system on here a while back that I had to wipe that was rock solid, so it must be a config problem somewhere. Any ideas?
Maybe try another kernel? Older, newer...
If you want some sane responses, tell us some more about your hardware,
kernel and X versions, filesystems, etc.
I must have been tired to forget all that stuff... Kernel 2.4.21, although I'll be going to 2.4.22 in the next few days, so that may help. Compaq Presario 2105us, X 4.3, KDE 3.1.
