Re: Kernel panics on new machine
Yes, I have the DIMMs in banks 1 and 2 out of 4 and I've removed and
reseated them; I have swapped out the SATA cable, there are no PCI
or PCI Express cards (system is headless.)
And it looks like it was just that easy; I pulled one DIMM and ran
the system on a single 512, problem gone; I wrote out 3 separate
100gb files without incident.
It makes no sense to me as the RAM was fine in the other system, I
never had problems.
What kind of system was the ram in before?
Oh well, guess I'm getting new RAM.
Get GOOD ram. Athlon64/Opteron systems are picky. Well known name
brand ram is not much more money than generic (and usually crap) ram.
thanks, sorry to trouble the list with such a trivial thing.
Ram is not trivial on AMD systems. :)
Thanks again for the help ... the RAM was used for about 4 months in
a desktop P4 system on an Asus board. It is good RAM, Micron from
Crucial. I suppose I must have shocked and killed it moving it, but
before this I have never had that happen in 20 years (and I've built
I've ordered Corsair as a replacement.
