two samples of problem from /var/log/messages
ran memtest86. lots of errors. one of the 512M memory sticks has gone bad. well
reopen if reccurs.
My system has a Gigabyte K7 Triton GA-7N400-L motherboard, with two 512MB DDR400
sticks of memory. It ran Fedora Core 3 sucessfully from 2004-11 to 2005-04 when
I installed FC4test2. The memory was/is good. I replaced it with a pair of
consecutive serial numbered sticks. The memory tested good one stick at a time
but memtest86 failed on test#5 with two sticks in a dual channel configuration.
It suceeded with the memory in single channel mode.
It appears that FC4test2 contains code which tends to trigger the problem
detected by memtest86's test#5.
