I had my main 500Gb pata drive upchuck all over itself last saturday morning,
and I had a heck of a time with the bios in this ASUS mobo constantly
re-arranging the drives as I struggled to save some of my data, like a 10Gb
email corpus, and figuring out how to get this thing to boot at all, the
installer did NOT write a new grub to the new drives mbr and I had to do it
in chroot mode to make that work.
Things are slowly getting back to doing the mundane things here, and I just
today noted that with the radeonhd driver loaded for X, and the digital cable
in use, that the monitor power control lack I was fussing about since I built
this 4 core phenom box/board, is now working!
So you folks were right, and something in that old install was full of
floobydust or something.
I have CRS, somewhat understandable for someone 74 and counting, which means I
may have a bz entry about it. If so, call it fixed, PEBKAC or whatever.
Now, if I could just make tvtime work. :( But that is a different thread.
