Have you noticed any electrolytic capacitors - probably in VR section - with
slightly bulged tops? Some of those have taken a *long* time to work thru the
system and fail - long after the 'big wave' has largely passed from memory.
Or maybe it's a new round of bad electrolyte....
The systems are up again except for pkgbox.dragonflybsd.org. apcupsd
has been integrated and tested.
There's nothing wrong with pkgbox's disks but the motherboard failed
to power up. In fact, both my Asus A8N SLI-Delux machines (apollo and
pkgbox) failed to power up. The green standby LED works but no fans,
no main power, no nothing. I've determined that it isn't the power supply
and it still didn't boot up with all the peripherals and cards removed
so it looks like a motherboard problem.
After some fiddling.. wiggling various things, I managed to get apollo
to power up, but pkgbox is dead. I am going to replace both motherboards
so pkgbox will probably be dead for the rest of the week.
