Spontaneous Infuriation

Filed under: Archives — mhoye @ 12:00 pm

Ok, yo – if any of you know a reason that compiling a kernel would cause
my machine to spontaneously reboot in mid-compile, let me know. This is
intensely frustrating, and I don’t understand what’s going on. It doesn’t
hang or generate an error message or anything – it actually power-cycles,
and then e2fsck tells me the file system is completely hosed if I’m
lucky
, and if I’m unlucky the machine gets part of the way
through the boot process and then spontaneously reboots again.

Even the eminently useful Tomsrtbt
isn’t booting properly, even though I had Win98 and then Mandrake working
without complaint on this machine not long ago. This is extraordinarily,
tooth-gnashingly frustrating. Time to get some fresh install CDs,
it looks like, and maybe a fresh CPU/mobo.
