I have a server with Fedora Core 3 installed. It has been running fine for over a year but started having problems after changing the motherboard. Detailed here
All other hardware including hard disks worked fine up until this point. The server now crashes periodicallly, aboout 3 times a day; it loses the console, network connectivity and just displays "hda lost interrupt" on the screen.
I am at the end of my tether with this problem. What was origianally a simple memory upgrade has turned into a fight to keep a server (which includes a website) up.
This is what I have tried so far:
- Recompiling the kernel.
- Disabling DMA from the BIOS.
- Flashing the BIOS with the latest BIOS version.
- Check the memory using Microsoft's memory test utility.
- Try older kernels such as 2.2 and 2.4 which used to work on my system.
I am not sure what else to try. I get a few errors at bootup before init is executed but the fly past way to fast to see and do not appear to be logged anywhere and it usually crashes while Samaba is writing a roaming profile via windows.
My last option would be toreinstall the system completely. I don't want to have to do this unless absolutly necessary however.
Does anyone have any ideas of suggestions?
