About Me

I've been working with OpenBSD and Linux for 10 years, but never delved into X-Windows as I use OBSD mainly for LAMP functions. I live in Northern California (NorCAL) and work as a Network Engineer.

LinuxMCE

After having major crashing issues with LMCE, I found that it didn't like my video card so much (though others recommended it...); it would crash X-Windows. Also video card was sharing an interrupt with my NIC. I have resolved these issues by going back to my initial build Video Card, and installing a new NIC which doesn't try to mate with my Vid Card's interrupt. My box is very stable now and never crashes and I'm really enjoying LMCE now.


Next Steps

  • setup a MD after I'm sure the Core is stable and maybe wait until 810 before investing any more moola

  • This motherboard seems to work but I got a ton of "rtc: lost some interrupts at 1024Hz" in Syslog and no one seems to know why...it resolved itself in 810 Alpha.
