Is this an ACPI problem, that seem to trouble with 2.4.20 ? ... i've
been running 2.4.20-pre5-ac1 for a long time without problems, but
after upgrading to 2.4.20 i had a bunch of crashes in a row (5-6 a day,
freezing the machine completely).
Machine is a Dual Athlon; AMD MP (762/766) based mainboard.
