    Exclamation Live CD runs for Exactly 14 days then starts crashing

    Hi All

    I like to run the LiveCD as my full-time OS.

    I see a strange occurance tho, after 14 days of being up, I start to get whacky kernel panic messages

    my firefox crashes and upon restart, it just freezes

    I'm writing this on Konqueror now


    Has anyone experienced this?

    Here's some exerts from the panic messages i get

    duff cdr?
    use verbatem or another quality make, perhaps burn 2 and see if changing to the second cures the problem, proving its a media problem

    or partition the disc and dual boot the system

    Check to see if your running low on memory. There may be some file or other that keeps growing until the system crashes.

    Nick,

    It's not the CDR, as this seems to happen almost exactly after two weeks. I can reboot and run the same CD just fine for another two weeks.


    As for my filesystem, here's the details
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    tmpfs 585M 137M 449M 24% /


    Seems I have enough room.


    I came back from vacation today and am going to download the bt2 final, run that for two weeks and see what happens then.
