Anyway I must report that I had several crashes recently (actually 3 in
a week, which is definitely much for linux) since I upgraded to 2.2.5,
with the planb as well. I have only controlfb in the kernel on a
8600/250 and use the XFB, and i get hard locks when switching quickly
beetwen X and console.
Don't know to what it could be related to. Can other people comment on
this ?
