I had a backend running fine on ubuntu dapper with perfect uptime.  The 
backend has a pvr500.  I upgraded the backend to ubuntu feisty and each time 
I did something with the pvr500, the server just hangs.  Going back to the 
dapper kernel was the only solution.
I upgraded the server to gutsy and it was a bit more stable.  I can access the 
pvr500, but after a ramdom timeout, the server reboots.  No entry in the 
I upgraded all hardware except the disks.  Still ramdom reboots.

So I'm running a gutsy backend with a dapper kernel :( and this combination is 
rock solid.
