System lock up misery
Posted on 2000-01-07
Recently, I started having trouble with my Suse 6.1 distribution. For unknown reasons it would just completely lock up. I thought the problem may have been all the customization that I added to the box, so I formated and reinstalled the base system. The problem didn't go away, in fact it seems worse. I will say that the box worked great for about 2-3 months without a single problem, and now it'll only run for several hours before it crashes. I'm not sure where to start on fixing the problem because there are no errors reported in any of my log files. I'm beginning to suspect a harware problem but I'm not convinced yet. This box is only used for ftp, so I'm not even working on it when it crashes. Usually I find out from some user that they can't reach ftp. Then I have to hard reboot 'cause no key combinations will release deaths grip. Any ideas on how to tackle this problem? Thanks much.
