I delivered last week a system with 256 MB to hungary. There were =
several problems.

DON=B4T use a Qlogic SCSI controller. It runns fine with 64 MB memory =
but 128 and 256 give big problems. Jay estebourg thought that perhaps =
something in the Chip is wrong with handles the memory and PCI =
intreface.

our solution was:

Take a adaptec Controller and the system works.

My system was running a 72 hours burn in test witch tested the =
harddisks and the memory (16 *.avi videos continues from the disks =
and beside the rock screensaver and compiling new kernels in batch)

before this change of controllers latest in 1/2 hour the system was =
frozzen now it succeeded all 72 hours. when we downgraded the system =
to 64 MB memory it also suceeded when the qlogic was in.

please let me know what your problem was and what solved it.

Thanks
