phenom II... cant rememb clock
4GB ram ddr2 800
128 gb SSD for OS
LSI Megaraid 150-6 (cheap, slow, but effective. Shame I dont have a board running around with pcix) caps logical drive size to 2tb, I don't care what the firmware update says.
4x2tb in raid5 + HSS
Done this install with many different types, at least 6, all w same problem.
OSs using ICS (not at same time)
Here is the problem.
update typically stalls out downloading
dist-upgrade always stalls out downloading
lmce always stalls out downloading
These failures occur on files of any size... in different places. Now what it looks like to me is that IPv6 is querying the piss out of the router and after enough of that the connection is lost until broken and re-tried. The bugs related to this are supposed to have been fixed in karmic... and it seems to only be an issue for me on the ICS side of downloading.
Except the ttf-mscorefonts. That fails on any connection.
Now when these scripts are done, some of them do cleanup which removes things necessary for the install. The broken packages show as existing, and do not install further.
So, my advice, if you are forced to use this sort of setup, is firstly, during update/dist-upgrade, to drop the 2nd nic from the router/switch/hub. Then save the output of any term sessions. Go back and find the broken dl links, apt-get remove them... --purge does not work out so clean, so avoid if possible. I don't know why. I am sure it is due to my ignorance in linux. Then apt-get install them again.
Once the AVWizard comes alive, this stalling out nonsense seems to fix itself, so plug your 2nd nic back in.
Mythtv components are AWESOME at committing suicide on dl. You have to watch them, in particular, very carefully.
ICS SEEMS to be happier on XP... but I could be making that up.
Lastly, wtg guys on beta 2. I want to be like you when I grow up.
