CentOS 5 x64 hangs during verifying packages, or when warm, it will hang during Anaconda start-up.

Ok, so Fedora 6 went on, which is also RHEL5.

Even with fans turned up, if I chew up both CPUs with gzip -9, it will hang within 15 mins.


OCZ memory is aparently no stable in these, but lots of people have stability issues with this box.

My company bought it to replace our hosted webserver.


Plus 4 hours of Gary's time.

Plus 9 hours of my time.

I think it would have been better to buy server grade system. I'm fond of the Dell Power Edge line for its pricepoint and reliability.
