14 It was a problem with memory module, I did not run memory test after assembling the PC (should have), so the Gentoo install OK, transferring standard (small files) md5sum check OK; but on larger files eg. 28GB scp, rysnc, md5sum all fail.
15 Running memory test give me nothing but errors, swapping the memory stick from a good PC solved the problem.
