Works a bit better right :) At least it boots here but I have a strange problem with it.

It seems 2.6.23-mm1 kills off java. Every program needs java here does not work anymore telling
'my java' installation is incorrect. Also I noticed firefox is acting weird as well thunderbird.
Gtk apps just random freeze and need be killed with -11.

Running 'java -version' manually returns nothing , 'java -jar some.jar' does nothing as well. ( not even a error or anything else )

( I've also tested sun's java 1.5 and 1.6 and openjre as well all with same result )

I only have a WARNING in my dmesg but i don't think this is related to this :

I also noticed some programs like vlc segfaults :

vlc[20506]: segfault at 01950000 eip 01950000 esp b4876368 error 4

Booting 2.6.23 makes all these go away.

I don't have anything else in my logs. Any idea what patches could cause this problem(s) ?
