Anyone running Xen 3.1 (kernel 2.6.20) on an Intel Core Duo 2 (X5355) with dom0 and xen compiled as 32bit?

I'm getting random postgres and mysql database crashes on all my Core Duo 2 systems, as well as SSL errors due to memory corruption. I tested all the ram and it checks out as no errors.

If anyone has had similar issues did switching to 64bit fix it?

I was running a 2.6.20 kernel on a Core 2 Duo system (E6320), 2GB RAM. The kernel, custom compiled under Debian Etch, used the Fedora Xen patches.

I am no longer running the 2.6.20 kernel because I too experienced seemingly "random" crashes due to what appeared to be memory corruption. For me the kernel would crash.

It was encountered somewhere that there was suspicion the 2.6.20 kernel (regardless of Xen patches) may have been the source for these problems, so it was discarded.

2.6.18 worked, and just today I compiled a 2.6.22 kernel (based on the Ubuntu patches.. not sure if they are also shamelessly stolen from Fedora).. but so far so good.
