    Random Kernel Panic


    I have Gentoo Linux installed on a system with an AMD k6-2 400 processor, 128 MB of RAM, and a 20GB hard drive. I get random kernel panics for some reason. Usually they are when I am doing a lot of stuff in KDE and when building packages in CLI mode. I get several kernel panics a day and I have no idea where they are coming from. I have tried different kernel versions too. Does anyone know of a reason why it would be crashing so much? I don't think it is an issue with the CPU or any chipsets overheating.

    can you give us the output of your kernel panics?
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
