Re: Kernel 3.11 is starting to live its life...
Thanks for the heads-up Vin.

I also experienced some hard lock-ups last night (during some package updates). I don't think it's necessarily or specifically because of the new kernel in my case because:
1) A few times during this cycle I can definitely remember getting exactly the same problem with earlier kernels when upstart was being upgraded from the desktop (as opposed to in recovery mode)
2) I only run fluxbox from a text login usually and I don't use a swap partition (or a swap file). I find that I rarely get near usiing even half of my paltry 2GB of RAM so I don't think the zram thing could be affecting me.
3) This old box actually has ECC RAM so I'm fairly confident my RAM is ok
No hard-lock-ups tonight I'm pleased to say...
Just feeling a little more cautious with updates at the moment!
