I've been experiencing some random lockups using the recent cvs code,
dated 15 July 2005 as of about 16:00 PST. The lockups will come almost
without warning: all of a sudden all network traffic grinds to a
standstill, and seconds later the machine is hopelessly deadlocked.
There is nothing in the system logs to give any indication of what may
be causing it, so hence I cannot provide an oops or a backtrace or anything.
i know, it's a "my car makes this funny noise" bug report, but believe
me, if i had more information i'd relay it :(
I suppose I could hook up an old wyse or something to the serial port
and connect the console that way... maybe if it locks again I'll do that.
anyhow, my system config is as follows:
nemesis# uname -a

if anyone has any ideas, feel free to let me know.

ahh, OK, so the CVS repository is back in a more "sane" state. :)
I'll try that when I get home, thanks a lot. Hopefully I can go back to
having a stable system again! :)
Thanks a lot.
