[maemo-users] N810 Now Resets Very Frequently

I went to the link and read it.  I actually feel it is helpful.  This week I
submitted 4 bug reports for both software and the OS.

The author stated his system was resetting and that he had lots of software
installed.  Obvious questions would be if there's any particular action that
causes the system to reset or if it's random. What programs are running when
the system resets, how often does it reset, etc.  What was he doing when it
reset?  What software was installed? Of course I would also want to know
what, specifically, he means by reset as some people have different
definitions.  Lastly (this is particular to me), I would want to know what
he restored from his backups (if he had any) and from what OS did he go
from.  The link, IMO, provides helpful information to help flesh these out.
I don't believe Igor meant anything else.

The link is a good set of pointers for submitting a bug fix.  My system
might reset but that doesn't mean they're related.  The only thing it
indicates is that there are two people who have systems that are doing
something (until a definition is agreed upon) that isn't good.

This is not helpful and in fact is inflammatory. When one has a
problem with a device it is helpful to find out if others are having
the same problem, and may have already solved it. If so, great. If no
one else is having the same problem, then it's probably an installed
app rather than the OS. Then one can start narrowing down suspects as
to the cause. People have to start somewhere, and why should they
duplicate efforts that others have already made, or go to great
lengths to fix something that is impossible because it's a bug in the

RTFM is *never* an acceptable response.
