Motherboard in barebones
I have been running Ubuntu 7.10 x86_64 server without a problem, except for vmware time problems. I was eager to update to 8.04 in order to get the tickless 64 bit kernel (which seems to work better as a vmwhare host) however I have a huge problem. First doing the distribution upgrade screwed up lilo and I ran into this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/ha...lo/+bug/221664.
I added 2 new (well, used, but empty) disks in, popped out my gutsy disks, and did a fresh install.
This works great except upon first reboot after install my md1/2 (depending how I partition) with LVM is stuck resyncing. As soon as it hits 93-100% during the MD rebuild, the box reboots. I can't see what is on the console because it's 15 miles away.
Anyone run into this?
Chipset: nforce4 of some sort
Processor: amd athlon x2-4800 (lm sensors reports 37-48c operating temp)
Disks: 2* WD RE2 500GB
raid software: mdadm....
1) /boot md0 device with 512M-1G
2) / md1 device with 20G and then md2+lvm2 400G partition
2) / md1+lvm2 device with 20G for slash as a logical volume.
In either case, the result is the same.
I am ripping out my hair. Anyone ever seen sata_nv/mdadm/hardy cause the box to reboot while synching, roughly at the same point ?
Edit; This is the x86_64 version, I haven't tried i386. Also: I MUST run x86_64 as I want to run vmware with both 32 & 64-bit guests & I don't have VT hardware extensions.
