Yesterday I made an attempt to bring my system to crash by putting it under stress. I simultaneously opened about 500 tabs with both firefox and konqueror (1000 together). The memory was all occupied, making the system to start swapping .
System slowed down and even I thought it was it: it stopped for about a minute or so. But then it was back. NO CRASH here
However, this morning It woke up from the suspend and I noticed that nm-
applet was trying to connect. I clicked on it and there you go I got my
favorite crash. System solidified. I could see the time Mar 13 10:17.
So I grep-ed the logs and saw ath5k module in use by the kernel.
Could it be it. I remember that I could not install intrepid on another
computer (compaq) because of the faulty atheros module. One had to
blacklist it in order to install and substitute by another module to be
able to use wireless.
I attach the log file below.
I did not see vmap error message in dmesg this time
** Attachment added: "the output of grep 'grep 'Mar 13 10:17' /var/log/* -A3 -B10' (the time of crash)"
