    Weird Crash Behavior

    I have the following:

    64-bit multicore processor
    RAID 1+0
    16GB RAM

    I've been running the Debian-based Proxmox VE on it for six months or so with no problems.

    Today I loaded Centos 5.5 x64. During a reboot, the file system crashed and fsck couldn't repair.

    I loaded it again, did all the updates, and loaded my applications. On about the third reboot, it crashed again and fsck couldn't fix it.

    I don't really know where to begin. I doubt seriously that any hardware has went bad since yesterday.

    So, I'm kind of clueless. I don't want to go down this road again.

    If anyone has any ideas, I'm listening.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    This sounds like a hardware compatibility issue to me. Can you update the bios on the system? What make+model is it? Is the CPU an Intel, or AMD part? What about the RAID controller driver? Did you install a driver from the manufacturer, or is it the default built-in RAID driver? What RAID hardware is in your system?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
