Thank you Licaon, I did not notice the MTRR issue I had. I do not consider myself an expert in linux, but I have been using it for about 3 years. How do I do the -logverbose 6? Can I do it via grub? Just to be a little more precise, these hard locks started only a few days ago, when trying to run games using wine, which I thought was strange. It was even stranger when the hard locks began outside of graphical applications. Ive never had an issue with such little report in the Xlog. I an currently using enable_mtrr_cleanup via grub in ubuntu 10.10 and cat /proc/mtrr has changed to this now:
reg00: base=0x000000000 ( 0MB), size= 2048MB, count=1: write-back
reg01: base=0x080000000 ( 2048MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back
reg02: base=0x0bf800000 ( 3064MB), size= 8MB, count=1: uncachable
reg03: base=0x100000000 ( 4096MB), size= 2048MB, count=1: write-back
reg04: base=0x180000000 ( 6144MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back
Is it normal to see uncachable memory addresses after using MTRR cleanup? I have tested just a little bit after and the computer seems stable, no more hard lock ups. Not ready to declare this issue fixed quite yet tho. Thanks again.
Edit: Ok i figured out the verbose option, will also try ssh, pointers for ssh would be nice tho never usid it before, will start googling for it soon.
