Wow, I've just now realized that I get two types of error message:
__alloc_pages: 0-order allocatiocation failed (gfp=0x70/1).
__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x70/1).

We are using LVM and ReiserFS, HIGMEM kernel.

Maybe it helps to track it down. Any ideas?

1. __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed.


Sometimes (doing anything in special: copying files, running pico,
and also doing nothing) I get this error:

__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed.

repeated 100+ times...This doesn't seems to become the system unstable but
I want to know what is this...

Any idea?
