comment Installing Phusion Passenger 4.0.20 on Ubuntu 13.10
Passenger complains because it queries httpd -V to find out what the MPM is. However, Ubuntu 13.10 changed the way that that command works, and as a result Passenger was unable to correctly detect the MPM. This issue has just been fixed in Passenger: github.com/phusion/passenger/commit/…

comment Anybody experiencing full system lockups with LUKS?
Here are all the messages for the crash that did result in messages. This crash happened on server C. Newlines are bit strange because these came from netconsole, but the messages are otherwise readable. At the time, we were running kernel 3.2.0. We've since upgraded server A to kernel 3.8.0, server B and server C to 3.5.0. Despite the kernel upgrades, servers A and B crashed yesterday, but with no messages. gist.github.com/FooBarWidget/6028587

comment Anybody experiencing full system lockups with LUKS?
Yes, the lockup happens hours or days after booting. The filesystem depends on the partition. Some are ext4, some are xfs. The latest crash resulted in absolutely no logs. It's as if the server suddenly powered off. A last crash resulted in multiple soft lockup messages, all showing dmcrypt in the stack trace. But during most crashes, there are no messages. The system doesn't respond to sysrq.

comment How to get notified of mdadm RAID problems?
I already have logging to a remote syslog host, and I still didn't get a message. Why? And why would sending email fail? Sending email doesn't require storage right?

comment How are SMART selftests related to badblocks?
Alright, that explains the difference between SMART and badblocks very well. But does this imply that monitoring the SMART status is enough, or do I also have to run long SMART tests once in a while if I want SMART warnings to go off correctly? I.e. am I supposed to run smartctl -t long /dev/sda once in a while, or can I assume that smartd will "automagically" warn me of imminent problems without me having to setup anything else?
