So I got a computer with a basic setup to be a home server running Fedora 13, here are the hardware specs:
AMD Athlon 1640 (2.6GHz Single Core, 1 MB Cache)
4GB Ram DDR2-800 Kingston
MSI Geforce 8600GTS 256MB
80GB + 500GB HDD
The hardware is fine, I have checked the memory and ran several stress tests flawlessly, on the 500GB HDD it runs Windows XP 64 Bit just fine, I have tried to install Fedora 13 on the 80GB HD and I'm getting an extremely weird behavior.
Here are the symptoms:
Mouse sticks/freezes every 1-2 seconds;
The ping answer from the machine varies from 1ms up to 800ms;
Slow response, gets slow and worse when on for long;
Takes forever to boot.
What's REALLY weird is the fact sometimes when the machine boots there is nothing wrong with it, Fedora runs smoothly really fast, all it needs is a reboot to get back on those symptoms, it's rare to boot "nicely" but it's pretty random.
Windows XP 64BIT works fine without problems, also Fedora 11 Live CD works fine, however, with the Live USB with Fedora 13 I get the same problem.
Never had this kind of issue before, any ideas?
