SubjectRe: 2.5.59 OOPS w/ fdisk & devfs
Well, don't jump too fast :)

I have been having extreme hardware issues with this box for the past
several hours. I thought it was 2.5.59 giving me grief but an old
kernel I had laying around presented similar issues. I'm busy swapping
cables, memory, etc to see who is being the bad guy.

So far, I've had issues with reiserfs, raw dd, mkreiserfs, tar, cp, mv
(insert a lot of shell commands), interpreters, you name it. Nothing
seems common except that it all occurs when hda data is going somewhere
else. I just swapped my udma66 cable on hda and I'm trying to stress
test hda now.
