This makes me wonder. I have went all the way back to 2.6.35-r15 and it
does the same thing. Could it be that my problem is unrelated?
Also, I copied my current config over and ran make oldconfig. Since I
am actually downgrading, would that work the same way or would it have
settings that no longer apply and may muck things up?
It's certainly possible it's unrelated. Or it could be something
similar and the other bug reporter made a mistake bisecting or didn't run
long enough to fail with that bisection. It's possibly a lot of things
since we don't have enough information.
I don't think that would work OK (but don't know for sure.) In most
cases it would probably work OK as I believe unused parameters will
be ignored. But if a parameter was removed or the meaning changed then
you might have a problem (unlikely I'd guess, but I don't know.)
Here is a update. Let's see what folks think about this situation. I
mentioned in another thread that I did a from scratch kernel. It was a .35
version. It seemed to work fine, for a while. When I tell Seamonkey to
download to my desktop, it works fine. The minute I tell it to save it to
my large 750Gb drive, I get a kernel panic. Keep in mind, there is nothing
OS related on that drive. Nothing OS at all. It is videos, CD ISO's and
such as that.
Here is another thing I just found out. I did download a few videos I
wanted to save. They were on my desktop and who likes desktop clutter. So,
I dragged them over to the large data drive. I did this by dragging from
the desktop to a open Konqueror window. This was not downloading or
anything, just a straight move operation. It copied a few Mbs and panic.
This had nothing to do with Seamonkey either.
So, did this issue just move from a Seamonkey sort of problem to completely
something else? Hmmmmm. After the crash, I boot to single user mode. I
ran resierfsck --fix-fixable on the drive. Not one error. I ran the smart
thingy and not one error there either. Thinking file system is bad in the
kernel, well my /home directory is on reiserfs too. It is the one that
Now, what the heck is this about? Does this make sense to anyone?
