I just made a new kernel without xfs, since I was not sure which
details where configured in the older kernels on the disk -> same
errors. All my trials were basicly on a reiser FS.
Google reported some issues from xfs and nvidia but I learned they
should have been historic (nvidia < 12xx).
Unfortunately my friend, where I got the "clean"  install on the
Dell is on holiday :(.
 Had 2 clean install runs within the past few days here, too.
However, the starting problems where the same on this installs
and the update is claiming Xeffects.u, too.
Since I did not try update on the Dell, this installation is
probably broken, too, and the problems are base on a defective
CD-set, as supposed first.
BTW: I made a "hand update" by copying the files and editing the
.xml file manually (patch-level and md5sums of files). It seems
that it gives some more stability (ut starts every 5 trials now
;)). Is there something more I have to take care of, when doing
such manual updating?
