    [ubuntu] Re: Is System76's support deteriorating?

    To bring the problem to a conclusion, my father recieved the new power supply. He was actually able to install the new supply himself, and it has resolved his problem.

    [ubuntu] Re: Is System76's support deteriorating?

    I've asked him to double check the connectors. I don't think he's comfortable with attempting to reseat the RAM. My father is not technical, and I'm 1200 miles away.

    He's ordered a new power...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is System76's support deteriorating?

    It looks like my father just confirmed that the problem is not the switch, but the power supply. When he shorted the pins, the fans would start for a few seconds, then stop. He was able to eventually...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is System76's support deteriorating?

    Thanks for the response. Again, this is not my machine, but my father's, which makes it a bit more difficult to diagnose, since we live two timezones apart. My father is very frustrated. He's tried...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is System76's support deteriorating?

    At this point, I no longer suspect the switch. It seems that the switch works much better after the machine has been on for a while. If the machine is powered off over night, it takes 10-15 minutes...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is System76's support deteriorating?

    Fortunately for my father, I was able to find a work around for him. By changing some of the power settings in the bios, we've been able to work around the faulty switch. He can now get the system to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is System76's support deteriorating?

    In this case, the computer came back with bent pins on connectors, and the connector not attached correctly. And the problem was not solved. Add to that the fact that they did not ship back the power...

    I've been using System76 machines for work and for home for several years, and I've recommended them to many friends. I've even fought against the corporate bureaucracy to allow my group to purchase...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: SCSI device changes with each reboot, mounting by UUID does not work

    Turns out the problem was that the array was set up for a failover, multipath environment. So the array would show up as two different devices, with the same UUID.
  13. [ubuntu] Re: SCSI device changes with each reboot, mounting by UUID does not work

    Yes, the mount with the device name works properly.

    mount -t jfs /dev/sdb /home

    works properly. I have not tried the mount with the UUID yet. I will have to schedule downtime on the server to...

    Deleting the panel and creating a new panel seems to have solved the problem. I did the following:
