Hi Ralph,

I also have an E450, and had a couple hundred days uptime...
but the bug eventually got me.  Compared to my test box,
which only goes for 20 minutes to an hour or so, the E450
was suprisingly stable. It may have to do with the CPu
speed, as my E450 has 4x400 and my test box has 4x440....
but at this point its had to say.

Meanwhile,  my 450 is running 2.6, becuase the bug was very
hard to trigger.

As best as I can tell, any SMP US2 box is affected.

If you want to use the same that we are using,
although it sounds like you may already have it.

In that time I've rebuilt the toolchain a couple of times, as well as Firefox, kdelibs & kdebase, and xorg-x11 and a bunch of miscellaneous stuff. Right now I have 6 days uptime on 2.6.12-gentoo-r3, and it's been rebuilding xorg-x11 for a couple of hours. > > If I *should* be having problems, but am not for some odd reason, maybe folks can suggest stuff for me to try out??
