Why are you reluctant to compile kernels?I am running 2.6 kernel on my workstation for months.
I am yet to resolve this issue.
Well, Debain/Stable is stable and Debian/Unstable is just that
By the way, I had the similar problem even with Woody r0 kernel-686
and an SiS Video card with the XFree-4.1.0 Debian distro - I solved
by using XFree-126.96.36.199 ( CVS at that time ) - which also solves
most locally available Video Card problems with X ( i845 being
foremost in list ) as also Sparc. Of course, it bypasses the packaging
Initially I planned for a 2 disk striped
I said 3/4 ide disks on 3/4 ide-ports - no master/slave - only master
Even with the extra cost of good ide-controllers, its still cheaper
than SCSI. And a 4-disk system means a hot-standby.
Striping on IDE disks will improve speed, but what about data if one or more
of the disks crash.
3-disks for one-level of fault tolerance and 4 for 1-level with
Actually, this is better than SCSI because the disk-I/O bandwidth
is tripled AND the fault-tolerance include IDE-ports/cables/drives.
RAID is redundant array of INEXPENSIVE disks - remember!
I was an ardent supporter of SCSI from the time I was involved in
the development of SASI ( parent of SCSI ) way back in the 80's,
but with raid support on Linux being quite stable I would no more
consider it - even for critical apps!
