[Bug 32304] Kernel panic at intermittent times

Public bug report changed:

I have asimilar problem. My system freezes after about 3 minutes of idle

There are no messages at all around the time of the freeze.

The following combinations of settings affect the time before freezing:

acpi disabled in BIOS: 1 minutes
acpi disabled in BIOS, acpi=off: 3 minutes
acpi enabled in BIOS: 1-6 minutes, unpredictable.

I have an Empac BlasterPC, apparently sold by Tiger.

I've discovered I can keep the computer from freezing by making sure it
is never idle:

perl -e '@f=<>; while(1) { sort @f}' </var/log/syslog

I've tried Hoary, Breezy, and Breezy with kernel 2.6.12-10.
