Got my first Fedora9 machine up and running in production as file server, ftp server and mail server. (Asus M2N-SLI Deluse)
Now working on another.
Wanting to duplicate the first installation, but this time a different Motherboard.
Wonder if anyone has experience with this motherboard (Asus P5M2(P)-E).
I am NOT using the on board RAID, but I am wanting to use the softRAID10.
I have 5 drives in the box, one on the IDE channel and 4 on the SATA channels.
I have tried the install of Fedora9 3 times so far.
I set the drive on the IDE channel to be both swap and /boot.
I set the other four as RAID10 mounted at /.
First time, the machine stalled at a little over 1/2 on the formatting.
Second time, finished the formatting and stalled in the middle of the screen where you select the major software groups...office, server, development, etc.
Third time, stalled during format again, but got about 80% complete this time.
Beginning to suspect hardware. Anyone have suggestions?
By the way, I find this forum very helpful. Hope I can contribute too someday :-)
