: My machine has had a few freezes too now. After installing 2.0.0 it's been
: up for about 9 days. Then it decided to crash and ever since it's been freezing
: every 2 to 3 days. I can switch vc's, but not even enter a name.

The freezing that I have experienced do not crash the machine. Once every
few days, a process (usually `make') will freeze and not respond to a any
keyboard input. It is as if the system stopped giving it time slices. I
have to kill it from another window and then restart the process.
