    With regards to the last, here is an anti-AOL! for the oops. I ran
    2.5.70-mm8 for several hours today, doing kernel compiles and running
    dbench 64 on ext3, xfs, and jfs. No oops.

    All while running X (although that now seems moot). Base distro is RH9
    if that could matter. System is UP (PIII), PREEMPT, IDE, i810 chipset.
