Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-07-12 07:58:31 EDT
Are you using reiserfs ?
Comment 2 Mario Mikocevic 2001-07-12 08:06:19 EDT
No !

Partitions are _only_ ext2 :

64M /boot, 1G /, 1G swap, 13G extended
	4G /usr, 4G /var, the rest /home
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-07-12 08:10:45 EDT
This might be a powermanagement issue. Could you try booting with
"noapm" typed on the lilo prompt as kernel parameter (eg "linux noapm")
to see if that works around the problem ?
Comment 4 Mario Mikocevic 2001-07-13 09:20:04 EDT
Yep, works with 'noapm' .
I'll try to compile vanilla 2.4.6 later .. When I get time I'll experiment
with BIOS options too ..
