Kernel 2.4.0-test11 does not boot after Mainboard exchange

Kernel 2.4.0-test11 does not boot after Mainboard exchange

Post by Otto Wy » Sun, 28 Jan 2001 18:37:44



A few month ago I exchanged the mainboard Shuttle HOT591P with an
identical one and now the kernel 2.4-test11 doesn't boot anymore.
Allways I get the following:

        ide0: BM-DMA at 0xf000-0xf007, BIOS settings: hda:pio, hdb:pio
ide0: VIA Bus-Master (U)DMA timing Config Success
        ide1: BM-DMA at 0xf008-0xf00f, BIOS settings: hdc:pio, hdd:pio
ide1: VIA Bus-Master (U)DMA timing Config Success
spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.

and anything is blocked. Where do I have to look for the defective
hardware?

I have an harddisk IMB-DTTA-31351680 on ide0(master) and a CDRom
MATSHITA CR-587 on ide1(slave). The BIOS detects them right, so I can't
think what's wrong.

hmm, maybe the new "identical" mainboard carries a different BIOS or
it is a different revision where some wirings are different ...
something like that.
Try booting a generic kernel from a bootdisk and recompile your
2.4-test11 kernel.
The 2.4 final is out, by the way ;-)

Hope that helps ..

No they are as identical as possible. I both flashed to the same BIOS
version.

I've already tried kernel 2.2.16 from a bootdisk without success. There
must be something defective (either mainboard or anything else) I only
don't know what. Does anybody know what hareware creates this ">spurious
8259A interrupt: IRQ7"?

:-) I'm currently running 2.4.0 on my running system.

1. EXCHANGING OPTICAL DISKS : DOS to UNIX / UNIX to DOS

I will be generating a lot of TIF files on a PC based system.
Those files have to get stored on an optical disk that should
be readable by an SGI workstation (UNIX).

Therefore, I need a utility/driver to allow me one of the
following:

a) allow DOS to write on a UNIX partition.

b) allow UNIX to read a DOS partition

Thanks!
