At the risk of showing my ignorance, I thought I would see if I could get a bit of help figuring out what my problem is. Here is the scenario:
1. Motherboard: EPOX 4PCA3+ with integrated highpoint controller.
2. (6) identical maxtor 200GB drives - 4 connected to the highpoint controller as masters. the two other are on IDE0 as master and slave (jumpered)
3. running RH 9 on a 2.4.20-9 SMP kernel
4. 32MB nvidia video card (RIVA TNT)
This system has been reconstructed. I had a fully working configuration that included more hardware, but this system is intended to act as a server.
As I was transfering the contents of the RAID to the single disk I experienced freezes. I wasn't totally surprised by this, but I don't have an explainantion for it. I started rebuilding my RAID (a raid 5 with 4 disks), and the system locked up during the build. This has never happend to me before.
I have a feeling that the video card is actually a factor here. It would be great if I could find some sort of diagnostic output to help me isolate the problem. Right now I have no log messages to work with.
