Over about two days, I have had three hard freezes with Sid/Experimental.
A few minutes ago, I saw one happen (the others where while I was away).
The computer instantly went from fully functional, no problems to frozen
solid. Nothing moving on screen, no response to ctrl-alt-backspace or
ctrl-alt-del. No response to ping or power button "soft off". The music
was replace by a fast cycling jittering/buzzing noise. After a hard reset,
everything is fine.
The most recent obvious candidate change is the most recent kernel update,
which I did shortly before the first freeze. This was the upgrade to
linux-image-2.6.26-1-686 version 2.6.26-9.
I see nothing in syslog - everything is normal and then BAM! - restart.
If anyone has any ideas or advice, that would be great.
Otherwise, I guess this a warning to be alert for problems.
