SubjectA Flightening and Strange experience compiling 2.5.58
2 days a ago, I am compiling 2.5.58 to test Intel810fb.

After serveal compiles , my machine stop responding with a repeating
message shows up in console:

<iDDDDD> setting is too high, resetting... (where D is a digit)

(I did not record the details, so please don't blame me not providing
details, just want to share my experience).

At this point, my machine is total not responding, ping from other
machine failed, console keyboard not responding, etc.

But the error mesage is repeating.

Then I unplug my machine and going somewhere.

After about 2 hours, I power on the machine again.

This time, after POST, BIOS reports CMOS data checksum failed. And
allow me to into BIOS setup to config again.

After that, my machine is working normally again.

And I have totally no hints to what happened.

Does anyone has similar problems? That is: H/W POST do not start after
machine hangs.

Sorry for not able to provide more details again.
