Most of the stability issues seem to come from high i/o and/or CPU loads. As with Gentoo typically people are doing a lot of compiling on a semi-regular basis, it's pretty good at causing this to happen. With some kernels, a nightly run of updatedb is enough to lock it up, and with others it'll run fine but die say unpacking a portage tarball. If you don't beat the system up too much typically it seems to run fine. On a slight side note, is your Ultra 2 UP or SMP? - -- Jason Wever Gentoo/Sparc Co-Team Lead -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.2.6 (GNU/Linux) iD8DBQFBf8WNdKvgdVioq28RAqKdAJ9sttA5j/uO4ZwbWf5WXOTDON/rgQCgkke3 VRR0vPjU7sLZrH8FcuY/1O0= =Xz4U -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-sparc@g.o mailing list
