In this crowd I am a total newbie. I did manage to get the supplied ubuntu image installed using tftp and nfs. I have installed lighttpd, mysql, php5 (wordpress), samba, transmission and it all works great.
Today I was moving some stuff I got off of torrents around (using an external USB HDD). I noticed performance was sluggish, and had windows have a few complaints like the share was disconnected. They were immediately resolved though. I typed in the top command in the console, and smbd (or something like that, the samba daemon) was about 96% cpu utilization. After that my console connection crashed. I rebooted the plug, couldn't connect.
After connecting using the serial cable, this is the output I get when booting:

Verifying Checksum ... Bad Data CRC
I'm booting off the SDIO following instructions on the wiki
. When I printenv, all the required settings are the same - I wonder is my NAND flash bad?
Hope this is the right forum. Any input would be much appreciated! Thank you!
