Will Solaris 7(Intel) work with motherboard with MVP3 chipset? On
Sun's HCL, none of the motherboard listed uses that chipset. Will there be
All other devices I have are on the HCL.
I'm using a 500MHz AMD K-6 m/b, DFI K6BV3+ (VIA MVP3 chipset), and am
experiencing some reproducible data corruption on file operations (e.g.,
on a big cpio archive, "cpio -i --only-verify-crc < archive" will
produce repeatable CRC errors - presumably on files badly written - and
random errors presumably on files badly read).
This is very similar to the problem described by Mikael Bouillot in this

incompatibility (it's a Quantum Fireball CR6.4A).
Any definite clues out there? (Mikael, if you're reading this, did you
solve the problem? - the e-mail address on your post is no longer
PS. I'd appreciate an e-mail CC of any reply, if convenient.
