SubjectRE: Linux-2.4.0-test10
Date
I have a similar hardware list and I don't observe any of these problems on
2.4.0-test10x. Is it possibly a hardware conflict somewhere?

What I do see occasionally is if X was ever heavy on the memory usage (say
I've run GIMP for a couple of hours) then the text console's font set gets
trashed until the next reboot. Console driver failing to reset something?
