Subject__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed.
I'm getting the above error on 2.4.9 kernel with kernel HIGHMEM option
enabled to 2GB, 2x Intel PentiumIII. The machine has 1GB RAM
physically. Althougj I've found many report to linux-kernel list during
past months, not a real solution. Maybe only:

I hope it's not related to memory chunks allocated twice, so I think
it's another problem in 2.4.9, right?

Linux version 2.4.9 (user@host) (gcc version 2.95.2 20000220 (Debian GNU/Linux)) #4 SMP Thu Aug 30 15:10:26 CEST 2001

The machine is running apache 1.3.20 and mysql-3.23.41 only, and is
not loaded yet. :( Any ideas? Thanks.
