SubjectRE: VIA Southbridge bug (Was: Crash on boot (2.4.5))
Date
From
oh really?   I have my memory timings set to 133/cas2/6-4-4-4.  One
wonders... *ponder*

I have noticed some general flakyness (hard to pin down) on the system,
though... random program crashes, minor visual corruption in X (which
fixes itself when you move things around), etc... Anyone want to take a
swing at that?

The IWILL problem seems unrelated. Its the board that more than others
people
report fails totally when streaming memory copies using movntq
instructions.

The Athlon optimised kernel places pretty much the absolute maximum load

possible on the memory bus. Several people have reported that machines
that
are otherwise stable on the bios fast options require the proper
conservative
settings to be stable with the Athlon optimisations
