RedHat 8 runaway
Installed RH8 on Abit kr7A-133R / Athlon Xp1900
Used proceedure supplied by "SharkyRolz" to set up with the Highpoint RAID controller on this MB. (See the hardware forum for a very long thread on this)
Initially, everything seemed fine. After several hours, the machine seems to saturate. The HD light is on almost continuously, and mouse/keyboard response becomes very slow. Cannot open tools such as system monitor.
Jumping to command mode, evertyhing is still very slow.
Check /proc: There are numerous processes running, with IDs up to over 7500
cannot exit using command line
return to GUI: cannot logout---no choice but hard shutdown, re-boot, repair file system, etc.
This drama has now re-played twice in 2 days
