I'm running fsck right now, and it's finding all sorts of block size
errors, to which I'm simply hitting 'y' and agreeing that things should
be salvaged and corrected.
Before running fsck, I had a look at the buildworld.out script that was
being written to during the buildworld process. I can't tell you exactly
what it says, but it definitely came to a stop in the middle of a
'sentence' of output. I.e. it looks like my new machine (yeah, the
soon-to-be-fanless EPIA again) must have crashed during buildworld.
What could cause buildworld to crash like that? I'm now worried that my
PSU board *was* damaged the other day. Is a damaged PSU the most likely
cause of this incident?
All advice very welcome.
Not enough information here to be sure, but it sure sounds like a hardware
You might do well to try memtest86 and cpuburn on that machine for a while,
to see if you can track down a hardware problem. Monitor the temperature
of the machine while doing so, could be that the cooling is inadequate.
