Re: Can't install -- locks up
I took one of my RAM chips out and moved the one from DIMM2 to DIMM3,
so that I have DIMM1 & DIMM2 only filled now. The board supports dual
channel memory, and I wonder if somehow it didn't like me putting
different sizes in the same channel.
I just tried a kernel recompile (while still in X this time) and I had
no issues (first time it got through a full compile with no hang). So
it was either the chip or the configuration of using that chip with
the others. The one I took out was an older pc2700 256mb chip.
Thought I would post the result in case it helps anyone else.

Just a note, that when the kernel build hangs, it seems to always
happen at the same place. Seems very odd. Last 2 lines:

3 times it hung at the same line
