I'm wondering how many people were experiencing problems with OSS... I
recently upgraded to 3.8o (the latest) from 3.8b. Under 3.8b, I noticed my
system (2.2.1) was unstable under, of all things, NFS operations. Machine
would spontaneously reboot under heavy NFS load. Never really bothered to
track down the problem, because I rarely do that much NFS stuff. But I did
associate it with OSS, since the onset of these problems was coincident
with installing OSS. Since upgrading to 3.8o, things at first blush appear
to be a lot more stable.
Questions: How likely is it that something like OSS would be the culprit?
Could a buggy kernel sound module cause spurious problems under NFS? Was I
running into a known bug? Have other people had similar experiences?
Mostly just curious. In general, I like OSS, and 4Front seems prompt about
