What is your setup?  Are you running a fresh install?  Have you
changed some packages or installed from source?
Comment 2 Sean Carolan 2004-11-17 10:43:32 EST
Fresh install, using a stock Dell Latitude D600 (now that I think of
it, this should have been filed under i686 instead of i386).  All the
packages are from the standard repository, nothing compiled from
source except for a few unrelated perl scripts that I use for development.
Comment 3 John (J5) Palmieri 2004-11-17 10:48:42 EST
Ok, can you post the output of lshal?
