Subject2.5.2[5-6] VM problem (oops)
Unfortunately, this report is not as detailed as it needs to be (can't
run ksymoops while the affected kernels are running). 2.5.25 and 2.5.26
both seem to have this problem, whereas 2.5.24 and earlier kernels are
fine. Problem is that kernel will generally "oops" within 24 hours of
booting. The process that triggers the oops isn't constant, but the
general character of the oops *is*... Here's the log, such as it is:

Yes, the kernel is tainted (NVIDIA driver). However, the only difference
between the tainted and non-tainted kernels is that the tainted ones will
crash faster, i.e., running X11 makes bad things happen faster, but not
running X11 doesn't keep bad things from happening.
