Unfortunately I didn't note exactly the error output, I will try tonight again (it's a server on production), but:I bet it is faulty RAM (hardware bug). To be sure run memtest http://memtest.org/ for a few hours if possible
- with 2GB, after lilo black screen ...
- with 1.5GB, the kernel stops after detecting SCSI drive, with a long output that explaned a memory error in stack ...
- obviously, rebooting with 1GB everything works ...
in a few hours I can report in ML the details ... (waiting for offices to close)
thanks in advice,
