I was just wondering if anyone else (in particular the Gentoo folks)
has seem something similar, or is O2 rock solid for you?
I don't know how Debian is patching things up for O2 (ths care to
comment?), but ip32 has been absolutely rock solid for me the past
several releases. The only modifications I make to the source tree are
a small gbefb patch and a minor Makefile patch (however, this is
probably different from other Gentoo folks...I hate using our kernel
source ebuilds which apply a number of patches for other platforms and
I had over 60 days of uptime recently with some variant of 2.6.15 (-rc5
I think), and the machine was hammered fairly hard during that time with
plenty of compiling, including significant portions of KDE. I have run
both the 2.6.15 tag from lmo git, and now I'm on 2.6.16-rc1. It still
seems solid as ever.
