Can someone please explain what each line here means?
wlan0_rename is my wireless connection (which changes between that name and
eth1 whenever I reboot.)
What do all of my wireless messages mean, and are they bad? What does the clocksource tsc being unstable cause/mean? What is
rtc , and is a lost interrupt (20 that is) bad? Also, what is the cause/problem with Pidgn, and why did it segfault? It did dump a core file, but it is 47.5mb so I cannot upload it here.
EDIT: My core file for Pidgin's crash:
