Hey guys, unfortunately i've nothing helpful to contribute to this conversation, but i just thought i'd say that i've also been experiencing freezes, except, on sandy bridge. I experience these freeze issues in Slackware 14 and Opensuse 12.2 on my thinkpad x220, i was beginning to think it was a hardware issue, (i'm still not convince it isn't for my situation). Opensuse runs the 3.4.6-2.10 kernel already. I'm going to try out the tips here on my Slack partition and hopefully they will work as i'm slowly converting my main laptop partition back to Slackware again, and it'd be great to remove this issue.
I had this problem too on an Asus R500VD ivy bridge, and also in an Acer A5920 intel 2 duo processor.
With aid of http://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub...sting-3.6-rc4/ i`m able to build the 3.6.3 kernel and it seems to be working fine until now.
Unfortunately i`m not own the acer notebook anymore to build a newer kernel to it, but the problem ocurred there too.
