    SubjectOne hour GPF in 2.0.24
     Hello again... I am running the 2.0.24 kernel and have been having
    serious problems idling. After approximately 58 minutes of no keyboard
    activity I get a general protection fault which kills off kerneld. I
    have tried everything short of hacking the kernel myself (which I
    probably should have tried), including a completely barebones kernel
    without module support, and without APM support. After the GPF, mv and
    cp have core dumped on me and many other non-pleasant situations have
    plagued me. I realize most of the development effort is going into the
    new kernels, but I am dying to have linux stable again. Below is a dump
    of my hardware followed by the /var/log/messages dump of the GPF itself.
    I would be willing to recompile my kernel all day long to test things out
    if someone can get this fixed! I apologize for the size of this email, but
    I think all information here is atleast mostly relevant:
