I'd like to give a feedback regarding the crashes I've reported.
Re: Disappearing root on 2.6.36-hardened-r6 upgrade
[In reply to]
I transferred my system to my spare laptop (exactly the same model). I
haven't experienced any hangups or file systems problems so far, using the
same kernel (hardened-sources-2.6.36-r7) and performing the same tasks -
including a regular weekly upgrade (at least xulrunner).
That drives me to the direction, that it may be possible, that my problems
were caused by some sort of hardware glitch. I would rather repair my
laptop rather than ordering another spare device. Since there were no
problems running memtest for 12+ hours, I suspect some problems with
either the CPU or the motherboard. Replacing the motherboard lays beyond
my resources, so I'll replace the CPU. That is pretty convenient,
especially because I have a spare CPU in my drawer.
What would you guys suggest to test the system with besides emerging
qt-gui? Are there any memtest equivalent for checking the CPU?
