We had a problem with Solaris x86 crashing after we installed one of
their 8 port intelligent cards (PC/8e). The machine would only crash
when we tried to access the digi board. The machine had 32MB's so
it wasn't a lack of memory.
The person who was having the problem for whatever reason swapped a
ISA video board in for the PCI video board and the problem went away.
Why he decided to swap video boards in the first place I do not know :)
He knows its a hardware IRQ configuration problem but hasn't had
time to call up Digi and talk with them. It been 2 months now and
not a single crash.
Actually almost every crash we have had with Solaris x86 was due to
incorrect board settings. Call digi and explain to them what hardware
you have and what interrupts your boards are using. Their tech
support is very good.
Good Luck. Post back when you find the problem.
