I just clocked my System (K6-2/300 w. 64Mb/100Mhz Ram) as K6-2/200
w 66Mhz external bus clock to check if it's a clocking problem. Same error (so
it can not be a relabeld cpu or a ram that can't make 100 Mhz). This is really
strange. It's the _same_ error :
Oct 13 14:30:15 top kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device Oct 13
14:30:15 top kernel: 03:01: rw=0, want=134223743, limit=3076416 Same sector :-)
Maybe it's my ram. I will check this now.
No. I just repleaced the ram with another one :-/ Nothing new.
