    Default Jetway MiniQ 760 Installation Problems


    I'm trying to get a Jetway MiniQ 760 set up as a Linux box. Details of the
    hardware can be found at http://www.jetway.com.tw/evisn/oem/miniQ760.htm. The
    processor is an AMD Athlon XP 2600+ and 512MB of memory.

    I thought I'd try to use SuSE 8.2 since I've had success with it in the past,
    but it didn't work (sorry, I don't recall the details right now, that was
    about a month ago), so I thought I'd move on to Gentoo.

    Gentoo 1.4 randomly kernel panics while trying to startup the install, so I
    thought I'd try Knoppix.

    Knoppix starts up fine in text mode (runlevel 2). If I do a knx-install to
    install it to the hard drive, everything goes just fine. However, after a few
    clean reboots, the hard drive always seems to get corrupted. I've use ext3
    and ext2 with no luck. I've also gotten kernel panics when untarring large
    files from CD to the hard drive. After rebooting, the drive is always
    corrupted.

    Thinking that it might be the drive itself, I replaced it with a drive that I
    know is working since it was being used in a different system. Same problem.

    I spent a little bit of time trying to figure out what exactly was going on.
    None of the various installers seems to recognize the PCI controller by name,
    but they don't complain about it.

    I really don't know what to do next. Can anyone help me diagnosing what the
    issues are with this install, or how to resolve the problems? I know I don't
    have many details, but I don't know what details will help. Let me know what
    information would help, and I'll get it.

    Now that I've spent some time looking at Gentoo, I'd prefer a Gentoo install,
    but I'll try anything to get a working box.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Sure. Your hardware's b0rken. Fix it. Sounds like memory, cpu, or pci.
    Could be all three! Swap stuff around and fiddle until you find out what.
