Hello everyone! I just upgraded my home server frmo 4.9-R-p3 to 5.2.1-R after having a few problems with modems and random hard lockups(?).
Well, first off the upgrade didn't solve this and I can still reliably make the box freeze with a new modem I bought which I hoped would cure the problem... when infact it's 10x worse with that modem :o) Has anyone got any ideas as to what could be causing this? The network card for the internal side is an fxp card and the network card the modem is attached to is an older 10megabit vx card (3com Etherlink III). I can't really think of any other information to provide right now but I really would be grateful for some prompting of more info and a bit of help! My last few emails to questions about the hard lock ups didn't get any replies if I remember rightly :o) Aside from that, I just copied a 400 meg file over samba and it really did seem incredibly slow compared to when it was running 4.9. It took agessssss to untar the backup 1.5gig file too! Is there anything I am supposed to tweak here? I am thinking about just reinstalling 4.9 again but I would like to avoid that if I can, as it would be alot of time wasted :o) I don't have any numbers for this unfortuantly either, it just feels and seems a hell of alot slower! For instance, when I was copying this file and tried to ssh in from my windows machine it just sat there for ages doing (apparently) nothing!
