Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-09-21 12:34:10 UTC
1) is this 2.4.2-2 or 2.4.3-12 ?
2) Are you using, or did you use, the nvidia drivers ?

Comment 2 Heikki Simperi 2001-09-21 12:48:41 UTC

1) 2.4.2-2
2) Nope, There is only some ATI rage 4Mb

A new Question:

1) Do you think that the kernel update should help to this problem?

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-09-21 12:50:17 UTC
We've fixed several bugs in 2.4.3-12; but it's hard to say if this one is fixed.
(the oops is a symptom of a kernel thread going haywire most likely, but it
could be a few other things)

Comment 4 Heikki Simperi 2001-09-21 12:55:36 UTC
I didn4t find any reports from this bug, so is it highly possibly that the new 
kernel fix don4t fix this problem?

Where I can find info about updating kernel from RPM4s? What are the steps to 
update from RPM4s the kernel?
