Another FAIL: Linux Server Resurrection

I picked up the new motherboard from the UPS store today, and after lots of work...I got it into the old case and all the other parts on to it.

Don't know if the old processor would've worked, opted to go with the new one. Partly because I don't know where fresh heatsink compound is....

It boots....the HD light seems to be stuck on all the time (the panel connector didn't quite match the jack on the new motherboard)...and it seems to get stuck if the keyboard doesn't respond. Upside, it appears that this motherboard has the ability to resume after power loss.

Seems to be running on the most part...that there seems to be some fs weirdness. :??:

Turns out the HD light being on all the time is related to the FS weirdness….after a long while, the light started behaving again. Though the FS is still weird.

Gonna try backing up and reformatting all the drives. Hoping its just a quirk due to BIOS differences, rather than the drives are going.

Though I suspect if the drive is going, I’d get a drive or two to get things going again. Though scale back the usage.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
