Well, if I can't; they're the ones who screwed up. :-)

Ok, ok; this isn't the same thread anymore. :-)

It probably is.
It's an old Athlon, MSI MS-7021, KT6V chipset; 512M of DDR... maybe that's
DDR 2; it won't run right with more.
I don't seem to have lshw.
Or, oddly, hwconfig. It's got 3 Seagate ST3000DM001s, 2 on a SiI 7114 PCI
with a pair of Fujitsu Deskstars, 2T and 1T; 40G Samsung boot on the mobo SATA;
the third 3000 is in a USB 2 enclosure.
And this latest rsync has gotten 78G and then paused; 80G and then paused....
84G and then paused...
5 min LA 1.9, and the rsync is the top process.
I have smartd running; no errors yet.
