Hi,
My computer keeps crashing 5 minutes after it is turned on, then never again for the rest of the day. I used to think this was the nvidia linux driver -but my new kernel is not using this driver!

Here is the output from /var/log/sysklog:

[... repeated many more times ...]

adam@a1700:~$ uname -a
Linux a1700 2.6.7 #1 Thu Jul 1 19:17:40 BST 2004 i686 GNU/Linux

Is this a hardware problem?
I recently checked my memory with memtest86 with no problems and the debian installer found no bad sectors on my filesystem.

Thanks for any help

Adam

It looks like a memory problem....

OR a kernel bug.

Did you compile your kernel from vanilla sources or is it a kernel from debian?

you might want to add the debian kernel patches ... I always recommend that the kernels from the manufacturer be used.

Here is the kernel-patches for debian for 2.6.7 kernel:
http://packages.debian.org/unstable/devel/...ch-debian-2.6.7

(there is also a link to the debian kernel-source for 2.6.7 ... which already has the patches intergrated)

I would try building the kernel from the patched sources and see if it has any impact.
