I just wanted to share some good news with you. I was about to replace
my RAM modules with the new ones just to check if it will change the
behavior. But first I decided to see if there are any updates
Luckily, there was a new bulild (191) of mythtv packages on atrpms!
After installation of these packages my system is working without
crashes for more than 3 days now!
So I would say it wasn't a hardware problem but it was rather a
software issue. Strangely this issue didn't affect majority of
Fedora / ATRPMs users (I think). Anyway, I think my problem now seem
to be solved, although I still don't know it's real cause.
These are the MythTV packages I now have installed:
# rpm -qa |grep mythtv
Previously I had version *-0.21-190.fc8 - the one that gave me
sporadic crashes of mythbackend.
