RE: [SLE] Suse 8.0 crash issues.

I forgot to ask. When my machine crashes (1 cpu only, kernel 2.4.16, suse
7.3) both Caps Lock and Scroll Lock LEDs blinks alternatively. That type of
crash have been reported by various people, with the only common thing of
using suse 7.3 or 8.0; but I don't know if your LEDs do that blinking.

I had to append "disableapic" in lilo.conf, and use gdm instead of kdm as
graphical login, and some adjustments in the kernel that I have
forgotten. Now, the crashes are more rare, and not so bad, I'm able to
"halt". Usually, it is memory swap failing, and some processes like cron
stopping suddenly. I thought kernel 2.4.18 had that solved, maybe not.

There are more suggestions at suse's sdb, try them.
