That's right - I was mindful of the length of the post. Each oops
logged starts with an address (I presume - an 8 digit hex string) and
then a line saying
kernel: PREEMPT, and then gives a module list, flags, identifies the
oopsing process, gives a few bytes of stack and then the call trace.
The hardware is now up and running on knoppix (earlier on 3.4 - now
3.5) and I've had no oopses. It did hang once, but I'm putting that
down to my dropping the keyboard and mouse.
I've been pushing it in the same way as I was the other box (running
convert on a bunch of images).
So, is it an Ubuntu kernel issue maybe, related to this hardware?
[Background - the hardware is my former deskunder, repurposed as a
spare server. While under my desk it was solid as a rock running SuSE
of various versions. The installed Ubuntu is on a disk which was in
another box, and it never oopsed there, though it wasn't used much]
