Hi folks,
  Last week I have posted one email abou the "Kernel Panic : End of free
list.." that I have received in my linux box (linux 2.0.29, squid 1.0.22).
  I've mentioned that it was the second time and that machine work as
proxy and www server (apache).
  I have received some answers with possible causes : memory, swap and
file descriptors were the suspects.
  Well, I have 64 MB of RAM and 70 MB of swap space. By the time the
first "Kernel Panic" happened I had up to 9 dial-up clients using the
cache so the memory/swap does not seem to be the bad guy.
  I have the file descriptor limit (256 right?).

  Before I try to apply that non-official patch is there any test that I
could use to test if the problem is this ? Is there anyone using squid
with a linux box and this patch applied ?

  Thanks, Mario.
