    SubjectRe: [ANOMALIES]: 2.4.2 - __alloc_pages: failed - Patch failed
    Right now before OOPS:
    Mem: 62244K av, 61292K used, 952K free, 0K shrd, 1496K buff
    Swap: 467444K av, 37344K used, 430100K free 29528K cached

    I got a lot of things running, several daemons, netscape, and other things. I put
    a 400MB swap for now just to help things.

    Here's what happens after oops:

    Wait a second...before I didn't have the 400MB swap on, and I had about 952K of
    physical ram left. Shouldn't it try and swap if it cant get enough physical

    It did NOT oops with that amount of swap:

    If i turn it off:

    Mem: 62244K av, 61288K used, 956K free, 0K shrd, 1448K buff
    Swap: 64252K av, 38024K used, 26228K free 29880K cached

    and try the xcdrgtk (X CDRoaster)

    I get...hrm.. this is really strange. Now its not ooping?!

    I dont know it must have to do with something somewhere I cant tell you.
