comment same harddrive on the same controller, but different cylinder/head/sector
thanks for the insight! I see I can ignore the issure. Still feels weird that there's different geometries for seemingly identical harddrives, especially as yet another pair of identical drives is reported with the same geometry - and moreover, the CHS values seem to change after I moved from GPT back to a DOS partition...

comment ZFS on FreeBSD: upgrade from 7.x to 8.2?
thanks for the info! :-) I actually did assume ZFS is indeed backwards compatible, but I could not import the pools on the 8.x system, so I asked just to double-check. It seems however I can not import them on the original 7.2 system either, so the pools themselves are the root of the problem, not the new system. BTW: on the original 7.2 system: ZFS filesystem version 6, ZFS storage pool version 6 (just for completeness sake)

comment linux freezes - how to find out if hardware or software is the cause?
OpenSUSE ran the entire night. Trying out Kubuntu 10.04 32 bit right now, but the difference is already visible. Seems like this is not hardware-related, it's Kubuntu 10.04 64bit freezing. I really feel kinda stupid right now - but then, I never had any Linux just freeze without any further message, unless there was a hardware issue...

I get 'Content not found' on your link, did you mean kde-look.org/content/show.php/Sensors-Monitor?content=111150 ?

the data was not on that machine when the trouble started, i've used these drives for quite a while now and never had any issues, so there's some reason to believe they're ok. i haven't copied anything.

comment linux freezes - how to find out if hardware or software is the cause?
i thought about booting freebsd before, but there doesn't seem to be a ready to use live system i can boot from a usb stick, so i might go with opensuse as you suggested or centos. a different distribution will probably use the same filesystem drivers, so some bsd might be required in the end after all. i'm diffing two folders of approximately 500GB each. unfortunately, they're on ntfs and hfs+ drives which makes matters more complex.

thanks for your response! :-) it is always possible that temperature contributes to the problem, but there is quite a lot of fans in the machine, the case is open, no hardware gets more than handwarm, no airflow errors in hd smart data and i would rather expect the machine to shut down instead of just freeze - or at least log some errors.

PS: care to remove the \ in front of \copy so later readers don't get confused ?

comment how to prevent log output from PostgreSQL stored procedure?
fantastic! thanks for the tip! :-) If -q is added to the -A -t parameters, the COPY log output is also suppressed. Now all I see is warnings and errors, just what I wanted.
