on attempt to emerge xfree, the system goes into a hardfreeze. no acsess, no reboot. have to hard power off to reset the computer. Gets as far as Unpacking X30src-2.tgz and then locks completely. Have tried deleteting this file from /usr/portage/distfiles and emerging again with no luck.
system is using xfs, basic cflags, base use flags, and healthy ram (tested).
using kernel 2.6.0 but problem exists in 2.4.0 as well.
Steps to Reproduce:
3.computer is now dead. hard power off required
asus a7n8x-deluxe Mobo Bios rev. 1006
SiI serial ATA with 120gb HD
ATI 9200 Radeon 128mb
boot on ext3, root on xfs
latest snapshot and sources
512 mb DDR ram
try cpuburn or memtest ?
what version of tar do you have emerged?
tried memtest. left it on for a day straight. and using tar ver 1.13.25
been trying to fix the problem. now random crashes everywhere and harddrive corruption. likely cause is tracked to the buggy nforce apic implementation.
Is this really a bug anymore? Was it originally?
