I'm experiencing some crashes on a P5-133, 40MB, Triton II HX EIDE,
3c509, on 2.0.27. Nothing on syslog, time to press reset.

Everything works until I start getting Segmentation Fault during a
compile, then I get Segmentation Fault at *every* shell command.
Sometimes sync works, sometimes hangs. I can still exit from the
programs (or navigate a couple of menus) but I can't run new ones.
I don't use X on that machine.

The crashes occur once every some days. The machine is in use 7/8
hours a day. It serves some NFS clients and is used to compile.

I've run memtest86 (from hwtools*.deb but it crashes on that
motherboard (well, it reboots as soon as it's run). The ram
seems good when tested on other systems, though.

Could this be hardware related?

I'll try it.
