What version of Kubuntu?

I don't suppose that this will be any comfort, but I get the same thing,
and have been researching it for more than a year. A rather small number of
people have reported this problem with dapper, although the affected
systems seem to have no one thing in common; I have not checked whether
people have reported a problem with later versions of *ubuntu.

I ran for about a year with 64-bit Mdv 2006.0 without a problem, but when I
switched to 64-bit dapper on the same hardware I started getting occasional
freezes. Sometimes I go months without a problem; sometimes it happens more
than once in a single day. I can find no pattern.

My current "conclusion" is that it's some sort of problem with the dapper
64-bit kernel and my ASUS A8N-SLI Premium mobo.

I did recently try one thing that some people reported as helpful: I tried
the 'noapic' kernel boot parameter. Since doing that:

1. I have had no crashes while doing normal work
2. I have a hard crash every time I burn a CD (at the point where the
burned CD is ejected)
