> I recently brought up an old 700MHz P3 4.9 machine and added a 3ware IDE raid
I had similar behavior on a 5.x-CURRENT machine which was solved by moving the IRQs assigned to cards around; the BIOS set up the SCSI controller, the AGP card, and the Ethernet card to share the same IRQ and this wasn't working. If the machine just locks up (are you running X? Do you have a serial console attached so crash info stays around?) then my guess is that it's basically hardware. > Any ideas for trying to figure out what is wrong with this machine? I know very little about IDE or 3ware, so I won't be of much help there. My hardware is all Supermicro P6DLH/P6DGH and the disks are all SCSI. I am running one system under 4.9-STABLE using 8 SCSI drives in 2 vinum RAID arrays and haven't had a peep out of that machine for a long time, except for sector failures (drives are EMC surplus).
