Well, Im not sure where to post this one… So I will post it in few spots
So here goes. Im unsure if its something ive tweaked or and update or an opensuse program installed on my sled. But my workstation all of sudden just up and rebooted.
while I was doing some multitasking… I was browsing the web and I was in a RDP session to a XP machine. So when it booted back up and I logged my self back in via winbind… I soon opened my Firefox and POOF screen goes blank and its rebooting again.
This machine use to have Icky Vista on it… though…I had the same issue with it at times.
Would this be a issue with my SLED OS or hardware problems ?

Run Memtest86+ for 24 hours or so to see if you have a intermittent
memory problem. Memory trouble is usually the reason for Linux
crashing and rebooting. Nasty comment about Micro$oft’s OS (sic) are
It’s summer now, and that means more heat. Last summer, my system started rebooting randomly, too. I couldn’t figure out why, because I thought it was a software issue. Then one day, the system failed to power on at all. I opened the case on the tower, and found that it was very dusty. The dust had clogged up the fan on the video card, forcing it to stop. This had caused the video card to overheat and fry. The random rebooting was caused by the video card becoming too hot, then causing errors.
Hmmm… that sux! Thinking you’ve found it and then it appears not so! With hardware playing up it could also be a faulty powersupply (as I’ve once had and it was giving me weird lock ups as well). I guess it will be a trial and error thing.
