Hi Ranjan,

What you mention here doesn't seem like the WSOD bug (may be I am
wrong I have never faced WSOD)...I think you are refering
to this->

As you might see from the mail that its a kernel specific issue and
every distribution uses different kernels (by defualt). Which is why
it is necessary to know which distribution are you using. On this
mailing list we have a convention to prepend the subject link with
[<distribution>] so that:
* Uninterested audience don't jump it
* You provide a vital piece of information automatically
Of course there can be issues which are not distribution
specific...but I think even then its safe to put your distribution in
the subject line.

I had been facing this problem when I was on SHR-Testing long time
back. Haven't seen this since I switched to SHR-Unstable (which, btw,
isn't as unstable as its name suggests :). I think even Debian would
be on newer kernel. I have no idea about OM2009

PS: Of course most of my mail is irrelevant if you are actually facing
the WSOD...yet knowing the distribution is useful
