Just a data point...

I haven't had any prolems what so ever so far at 18 hrs.

I just installed it yesterday on an Athlon XP 3200+ w a nvida 2 chipset

Distribution is Slackware 10.1

I am running W$ XP Pro under VMware 5 & have interminently heavy NFS
traffic.

I compiled 2.6.12.5 w gcc v3.3.4. Did you by any chance build w gcc v4 ?

Cheers,
johnh
