No, no reproducable lockups exept for when i netboot an Irix box from
this box. However i did'nt test this recently with the new 1.6
installation (this is another story...).

Building from sources locked the box up too several times.

I am using the box as kind of router between my powerbook which doesn't
work together with my cheap switch and network traffic didn't cause it
to lock up.

I received the qube2 with just one 64mb module. I don't know if this is
the factory setup however.
Swap should work, yes.

I have 256mb swap and it is used at startup.

Ok, so far it seems to be a hardware problem. I will try to check the
memory. Thank you all for your replies,
