Sorry I did not keep logs of my abit bp6, but I vaguely seem to recall seeing
this error many times on my boards' logs, and I didn't even think about it;
because everything kept on working just fine.
But my error might have been a less critical subsystem... (the NIC maybe ?)
I might even be completely confused. Just saying: are you sure it's a fatal
error ? Maybe recording 11 hours straight just strained some minor muscle
somewhere and all it needs is a good nights' sleep. ;-|
But anyway, if you're really dependening on this board, and if you don't need
the CPU power because you're recording with a PVR250, have you considered (as
a last resort) to take out one of the CPU's (or load a non-SMP kernel)...?
Linux: Because rebooting is for adding hardware.
