I've exactly the same problem with similar symtoms. Its also on IBM
2.4Ghz P4s (Netvistas - I've tried two identical machines). Its not
like its a complete freeze, but the system becomes *so* slow it may as
well be. For example, the 'beep' you get when bash autocomplete fails
lasts for several seconds. A shutdown takes tens of minutes. I've no
graphical environment installed and am pretty sure that its a kernel
I've witnessed this problem on both 2.6.8-2 and 2.6.11-1 (from
unstable). So far, 2.4.27-2 seems to be unaffected. I'm not sure
about load average, but my cpu average was also around 0%. If it
helps, I'm using XFS on top of LVM on top of RAID 1.
Any suggestions? I might give a vanilla 126.96.36.199 kernel a go.
