Hello Group

We have a FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE System which is booting once or
twice in a week without any meaningfull messages on the console
or in a logfile.

May 14 11:41:26 ldxp syslogd: kernel boot file is
May 14 11:41:26 ldxp savecore: reboot after panic: page fault
May 14 21:31:36 ldxp syslogd: kernel boot file is
May 14 21:31:36 ldxp savecore: reboot after panic: page fault
May 18 09:10:37 ldxp syslogd: kernel boot file is
May 18 09:10:37 ldxp savecore: reboot after panic: page fault

My first thought was RAM so I did a memtest86 over night but
everthing looks ok.

I was able to get and open a kernel dump but have no idea what
this stuff means :)

Can anyone give me a hint where else to look for the problem?
