kernel: __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (after upgrade to 2.4.23/24)


I seem to have a recurring problem after upgrading to 2.4.23. I also
tried moving to 2.4.24 with no luck.

I have system with 256mb ram and 1gb swapdisk. During certain nights
(seemingly random), the kernel spews forth a number of messages like th
one in the subject and kills random processes rendering the machine
useless until a reboot.

I suspected memory shortage but now having mrtg running on it graphing
free memory, it shows that there was a minimum of over 400mb memory (RAM
+ SWAP) at any given time.

Does anyone have ideas why the kernel might be dying like this?

Thanks and best wishes,
