SubjectTyan Tomcat I board - Triton II
We have been having some serious crashes with
a (new) Tyan Tomcat I board (P133MHz), Triton II.

Although the last crash trashed the hard disk, it was
possible to get some error messages (appended).

Generally:

(A) No problems if there is no cache module
(Not a hardware problem with the cache module as we
have changed it (from 256 -> 512), without success.)
(B) (A) seems to rule out RAM problems (32Mb on board).
(C) TRITON was _not_ enabled in the kernel build.
(Bios - award - set to FX option)
(D) The crashes that have occured are _very_ nasty
and are trashing libraries, files. For example, when
we tried to compile the kernel on the machine, make dep
produced *.h files with spelling mistakes....
(EG: #defipe rather than #define, duplicate blocks etc).
(E) After changing cache to 512 the machine ran
for at least 7 or 8 hours w/o problems. Yesterday crashed
again- rather Xserver (AcceleratedX - 1.3, card Matrox)
Not possible to restart. Attempts led to further disk
corruption.

(F) Other info: Two WD hard disks, ATAPI CD-ROM.
All hardware on machine known to work with
previous motherboard.)

Any help/advice would be appreciated. In particular,
is there a problem running 430HX chipset with linux
and/or is there a known cache problem with this board?
Fixes? Apart from removing cache module :-(
Final question: Even if there is a hardware problem,
I am disturbed by the degree of corruption that the
file system suffered. The last crash required
complete re-installation - e2fsck reported
duplicate blocks,...

Many thanks,

Mike Field
