Re: sata_nv OK in f10?

Not in F10 (yet).

I was downloading updates earlier, and my machine started
freezing up and windows started disappearing. Typing reboot
made it go into a 100% cpu state, so I eventually powered
off and back on and things have been OK since then.

Naturally I also suspect the disk may be failing, but it is
only a few months old, so I thought I'd ask if anyone else
has had suspicious disk problems since going to f10.

Funny you should mention this. My F8 server has sata_nv and its been running just fine, but the PATA side of things has been burning through hard drives. My last IDE drive (17GB) is my oldest currently running (and is my boot drive) and has been getting SMART failures for just over a year now. I'm waiting for it to fail and it hasn't yet. I don't know if its the disk, the system's power supply, or the chipset. But I *have* lost 2 other HDs in the same machine (120GB and 40GB), both while on the secondary IDE channel. I figure I'll go SATA only when it does die.

I found this gibberish in /var/log/message (no clue what it
might mean :-)

I'll certainly keep a watch for additional errors (and make sure my
nightly backups keep running OK :-).
