Re: Linux 2.4.22-pre3

Still receiving lockups. It it is about 2 days and 10 hours before the
system just freezes. I can use the sysrq keys to safely shutdown. No error
messages present in any logs.

As I stated in previous emails, when I run sync every hour, this prevents
the lock ups. I will try this under the 2.4.22-pre3.
