2 warnings and 3 errors issued.  Results may not be reliable.

desktop froze (mouse not moving), the machine was useable for some minutes via
ssh session, then even this froze.

is this another NVidia related oops or something else? the address in the last
line of ksymoops output looks foo to me ...
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-09-16 04:27:14 EDT
seems like you're alsa too. Are you using nvidia binary only kernel modules?
Comment 2 Jure Pecar 2002-09-16 04:47:44 EDT
Yes, NVdriver was loaded (dvi output on GeForce2mx does not work without it), 
but i've no idea why it wasnt listed by ksymoops. There's alsa 0.9rc3 too (i810 
audio does not work with oss modules). This is going to be a common setup here 
(~300 machines) so i'd like it to be reliable.

Btw, do you have some 'known working' email address at NVidia? I've got no reply 
at their linux-bugs@nvidia.com ... Have to check their forum next ...
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-09-16 04:50:45 EDT
i810 audio we recently fixed.
NVidia and reliable... hmmm no.

Comment 4 Jure Pecar 2002-09-16 05:09:26 EDT
Oh, just got another strange looking oops on the same machine ... Consider this 
unimportant untill i came back with the memtest86 results.
