Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Hardware trouble

Published: Monday 2007-01-08.

Okay, now I have tried switching Linux kernel revisions, X versions, graphics cards and hard disks, but the machine keeps hanging at regular intervals. The question is whether it simply is the CPU or some component of the main board that is getting old and tired, it is, after all, five years old now? I do not really feel like buying a new computer at this time, but since this after all is my main workstation and that several things stop up when it is down, perhaps it is time I face the facts and do it?

Maskin som henger med jevne mellomrom får meg alltid til å mistenke RAM.

Eventuelt en flaky strømforsyning.

Minne har jeg sjekket, og testprogrammene sier det er ok, men strømforsyningen kanskje jeg burde se om jeg kan få byttet, eller så kanskje jeg bare trenger å få ut støv ur viften... Takk for gode forslag!

En gammal linuxmaskin som jag har haft hos mina föräldrar hadde samma problem. Av nån anledning visade det sig till slut att det var tangentbordet som var problemet, inte det första jag tänkte på.

Jag minns att Stefan O vid ett tillfälle totalrenoverade en fläkt i sin dator, mest för att se om det gick. Och det blev väl bra, efter att ha rengjort och smort upp lagren.
