SubjectRe: Are we going too fast?
I'm running a SMP (2xPIII 600) on a Tyan Tiger mobo (Via Apollo Pro 133a
chipset) with a G400 and it runs fine, when I do the following:

- disable APIC ("noapic" as a boot parameter). Then again, the
system won't boot without APIC disabled.
- use the ALSA drivers for my SoundBlaster Live. (I haven't
tried the kernel-based drivers for a few version now, so this
situation might have changes, but up until I switched to ALSA,
I had crashes all the time during medium to high I/O.
- use the uhci USB driver when I'm using a USB printer. If I
use the usb-uhci driver with my USB printer, the whole system
locks. This has been reported a few times on LKML,
linux-usb-users, and linux-usb-developers and nobody helped,
but a few people wrote back with "me too"s. It was broken in
the trasnition from 2.4.3 to 2.4.4 and only seems to affect
SMP systems. I just gave up on USB printing and went back to
my parallel port.

Finally, I'm using RedHat 7.1. This system has no stability problems
now (after a long series of all kinds of stability problems). Maybe
it's a load thing, I don't know, but it now runs stable.
