That sounds about right for me as well.

I've seen it as well. I've been fighting this since I got my copy 3
weeks ago :(.

I've ruled those out since it occurs no matter if I use "nv" or nvidia
drivers. I even downloaded and installed from in case it was
a fault with the Suse install. No changes. It will lockup within 8-16
hours in X without fail, or within minutes of trying to convert video
from avi to mp3 no matter what tool I use. (using either nv or nvidia).
I've lost my paritions a couple of times now and reloaded. I backup
almost hourly now while I am trying to suss it out.

Mine also. And if I use ext3 partitions, unrecoverable each time.
Reiserfs has errors, but it will take it a couple times before giving
up the ghost.

I'd go back to 8.0 but I already gave my disks to a friend :(
