[Icecast] Kernel Error with Icecast

I currently have Icecast 2.3.1 running with Darkice on a 
Fedora Core 4 box (with the 2.6.14 kernel). We have three 
streams running (all mp3) @ 128kbs, 64kbs, and 24kbs.

I am consistently seeing the following error:

kernel: Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual 
address ffffffff

It does appear to be icecast causing the error. Oddly, when 
this first started showing up, it would crash icecast 
entirely - meaning I couldn't get any stream. Now, it seems 
that icecast continues to run, but only one or two of the 
streams will fail.

Any ideas? I have a friend who's also looking around, but 
we're pretty stumped as to what's causing the error.



P.S. This is a brand new hard drive, and a brand new 
installation of fedora core and icecast. The computer itself 
is about 3 years old (Dell).
