Description keith 1999-11-24 10:11:27 UTC
Whilst running a new install of RH6, the machine crashes with virtual
paging request failed, followed by a whole screen of stack traces and
stuff (available on request), then the machine hangs and needs a hard
reset to continue. This happens randomly, sometimes during startup,
sometimes at the graphical login, but mostly once loged in and running

Does this machine pass a memory tester like memtest86 ?
