9.1 randomly freezing up
 
I took a look in /var/log/debug and found this :

I have identified the problem to be with faulty leaking caps on the motherboard.

After 6 years :D:D:D ?

Edit: I see that you've edited the first message today. A new way of thread resurrection ;).

Although this is an ancient post by any standards I hope you don't think the kernel message relates to capacitor leakage on your motherboard, This message is passed from the kernel cpu detection subroutine in common.c in your kernel source tree.

That function is true yes but the leaking capacitors cause any number of weird things happen to any operating system, usually kernel based since it's such at such a low level, I see what you were referring to the "caps" in there which has nothing to do with what I was referring too. After the motherboard was switched out with an identical one the system runs stable again.
