Re: nasraq2 crashing and rebooting...

I'd be inclined to check your memory - maybe remove and reseat it ?

I've had my Qube2 do this a few times and before looking for something sinister I reseated all the RAM and it hasn't missed a beat since.



I've recently set up sarge on a nasraq2 (raq with 2 IDE channels and 2
disks); problem is, the box is rebooting all the time, 10-20 times a
day; sometimes it is just rebooting and comes up again immediately,
sometimes it becomes unreachable (the box is in a remote location,
I've only got network access) for a few hours and then re-appears.

With all that talk about problems with network and disk load on
cobalts, I'd like to know how those problems manifest themselves. Is
the pattern I described something that could be kernel-related, or do
I have to suspect a hardware problem? There's not much load on the
machine, a bit of SMTP traffic basically.

The problems occured both with a self-built 2.6.15 (with patches from
linux-mips.org) and with a self-built 2.6.16-rc6 from the sources at
http://people.debian.org/~tbm/mips-2.6-kernels/ (I had to change a few
.config options, so I can't use a prebuilt kernel).
