    Subject[VM Kernel 2.4.13] Congratulation - first time, backup has been working without break
    Hello all!

    I'm very glad of VM in kernel 2.4.13. It was the first time today, that
    my backup run without any problem and without massive caching on the
    backup-Server (only about 10MB during KDE2-session with konqueror,
    knode, ...) . Working parallel with other applications has acceptable

    Comparison with 2.4.13-ac4:
    Nearly the same programs running in background, the backup break down
    after about 60s of getting datas via ethernet. At this point, the swap
    has been grown over 56Mb!! Normally (= if the backup runs to the end at
    the second or third try), 300MB swap weren't enough. Working with other
    applications is impossible or painful.

    I do my backups of the whole harddisks (all in one over 20 GB) with
    rsync (of remote machines too) to another HD on the desktop, which is
    only used for these backups.

    My system:
    backup-server (also desktop): 512 MB RAM, usually 256 MB cache, Athlon
    800 with 2 UDMA4-disks (20 and 45GB).

    Unfortunately, there is one great (old) problem with any
    2.4.x-vanilla-kernel, which isn't fixed until today and which prevents
    me of using the vanilla kernel:
    Usually after some restarts of the X-sserver (4.x.y), my screen (not the
    monitor itself; no sleep-modus is shown) is beginning to go off and on
    again (when the mouse is moved) within seconds. You can't get rid of it
    by restarting X - you have to reboot the machine.
    This problem doesn't occur with ac-kernels.
    I'm using DRI - but without DRI, the problem doesn't disappear :-(. I'm
    using no energy-safing modes - and nothing is configured or compiled
