10.1, server crashing repeatedly

I'm running Mandrake 10.1 CE on a Dell 1750 server (Xeon 2.8, Raid 1 SCSI HD's). I believe I've updated all the packages to current.

The server has crashed twice in the past day. By crash - it refuses to allow any ssh/httpd/etc connections. I can get a ping out of of the ethernet ports but that's the only response I can get. Did a hard boot, that cleared it up for a few hours, then it locked up again.

It's been running at it's current location for a few days without any problems as we begin to put it into production (and a couple of weeks here, before that). The only thing I can think of that I did today is urpmi php-xml (and I also installed wordpress, a blogger program). Neither strike me as something that should be locking up the server.

I'm stumped - and the server is offsite where I don't have access, hardbooting is a costly issue. What I'm wondering is:
- any ideas on what might cause this lockup?
- any thoughts on how to even begin to diagnose? The logs didn't really provide any info (other than that the logging ceased when the server locked up).


(sign me...)Stressed out in Canada .

Just an update on this, over a year later . Mandrake 10.1 had a problem with the Raid controller in the Dell 1750. For some reason, that caused problems with the network card.

A quick upgrade to mandrake 10.2, and the problem went away.
