Hi guys!

Just checking if anyone knows this error or if they have a clue that it
might be.

My alpha hangs from time to time, just super hangs, console, vga nothing
works, has to hardreboot it through pressing the off button.

The weird thing is that it can stay online for about 1-2 months sometimes
then suddenly hang 2 times in one week.

Today i noticed something on the console though just before it hung.

Aug 11 03:24:11 sonya inetd[794]: warning: can't verify hostname: gethostbyname2(, 2) failed
Aug 11 03:24:11 sonya inetd[795]: warning: can't verify hostname: gethostbyname2(, 2) failed

And then somthing like:

Warning Processor return correct.. here it froze....

Im not 100% sure of the last message, since i forgot to write it down
before i rebooted the whole system.

The CPU is a 533MHz 21164A and just as a notice the whole system works
flawlessly through a complete make World.
