I've got a new box I'm trying to setup as my main server:
VIA EPIA EN-15000G Mini-ITX board 1GB RAM in a 1U case (Travla 146)
Memtest86 runs for days without an issue.
Various Distributions failed to recognize hardware or would only run X
at lower resolutions.
Fedora Core 6 worked, recognized all the hardware (video card &
monitor), but will hang after a few hours or days.
Booting with the serial console doesn't give me any output when the
Booting to init level 3 and doing all the graphical stuff via VNC from
another machine allows the system to stay up longer on average, but it
still hangs within a week...
I'm running the latest kernel available via the yum updates for FC6.
Any ideas for things I can try? A friend suggested swapping power
supplies, but I really doubt that's it, and I don't have a spare one
handy. Anyone want to loan me an ATX powersupply? :-)
Currently I've got it booted NetBSD from another disk and so far it's
stable without X, but trying to 'startx' kills it.
Anyone else running an EPIA C3/C7 system with linux and happy with it?
