Chimaera didn't help, though the symptoms changed.
I booted from the chimaera live desktop, and it started looking hopeful,
but before much was running it had a kernel panic -- attempt to kill init.
Yes, I checked the checksum on the download.
And when I used chimaera to boot another computer (a Purism laptop) it
worked flawlessly.

I'm once more suspecting hardware.
Next stop -- memtest.

And memtest shows an enormous number of memory failures. Which makes me
suspect something systemic, not just a bit here or there.

I'll have to replace the RAM, I guess. Or find out what memory bus is
