I am running sarge
with an 2.6.9 kernel. with 4 SATA drives in my HP ml110 server. It has been good
for the last 7 months. But after a standard reboot it started to act very
strange in the boot process.
The boot partition
resides on /dev/sda, which recently was in a linux software raid1. but I had to
replace the other disc and havnt resynced it yet.
I get the error
(addrmarknotfound) and the system halts before mounting the discs and loading
the system. I first thought it was a faulty disc but I lifted it out of the
machine and iinto another sata based computer. there it booted without any
problem. Then I replaced both the controller (promise fasttrack sx4), the
motherboard and the SCSI card (adaptec based). Now the system boots every three
or fourth time I restart it.
I have tried to remove all the PCI cards and restart the
machine, the problem seems to be with the SCSI card, because when I remove it,
the machine comes a bit longer, but instead hangs at "Freeing unused kernel
searched for answer about this everywhere, can someone help me? Is it possible for this SCSI card to be incompatible
with my motherboard?
