The latest e-mail shows similar messages (2.6.34-rc1).

OK- btw, keep in mind all boards have been removed from the system, also,
the serial port, 1394, some other things, floppy, etc, have been disabled
in the motherboard, to free up IRQs if that was the cause, no difference.
Also tried many pci= options, noapic, acpi=off, nothing helps.

The system stays up for 5min, 10min, 1-2hrs sometimes and then the box
will reboot, even with various kernel debugging enabled, nothing is captured,
have not setup netconsole for this server yet, but I don't think that would
get anything either due to how this error occurs. It is a brand new
motherboard/memory/etc. What is interesting is running stress, there are
no issues, but I was able to make it crash by reading all of the drives
on the system and running lilo at the same time, that was the only time I
made it crash on-demand, or "reboot"- as there are no logs/etc of the crash.

The memory has been tested, latest memtest from the latest System Rescue
CD, it has 1 stick of memory (1GB), it passed the memory test successfuly,
there were no errors.

Thanks for the response..
