Hrm, ok, reopening then. You might try blacklisting the wireless driver
since your earlier traces showed it breaking. I'm confused though. You
said you had troubles with moving large files with samba. That wouldn't
affect the boot, so you should still have a log somewhere.

Cheers,

Bug#613172: The gziped systeminformation
 
Tried blacklisting rl2870sta and unfortunately it did not really help...

So far I have been able to get it to crash (every time I attempt these
actions, so 100% reproducible):

Mkfs.ext3/4 /dev/sdc5 (which is a 1TB SATA disk)
Make -j3 bzImage && make -j3 modules

The same happens when I transfer a 48GB windows backup system image to a
samba share.

The grand unifier in these actions is that they put a strain on both SMP/CPU
load and disk I/O.

The system throws a trace to the console and freezes using 2.6.32-5-amd64.
Using a custom kernel I manage to overcome the initial freeze, but a reboot
remains mandatory.

I can provide you with login details if you want to take a look, I'll grant
you any help you need, you can install whatever you need even if that means
I need to reinstall the system.

Regards,

Barry Schut
