C-A-D and AMI BIOS works shutdown

C-A-D and AMI BIOS works shutdown

Post by Epst.. » Thu, 20 Aug 1992 02:47:13

I have a 386 which will fail 100 per cent of the time to C-A-D with
shutdown (admutils-1.1) called as 'halt'.

It works 100 per cent of time as shutdown.

It even works 100 per cent of the time as shutdown -q now

Reading the source, would have thought shutdown -q now equivalent to
halt --- motherboard and AMI BIOS don't think so.

BTW:  reboot fails 100 per cent of the time.

shutdown is the first routine to completely work with AMI NCS BIOS.

C-A-D without executing any of the three, just sync works 10 to 50 per
cent of time depending on kernel from 0.12 thru 0.97pl1.5



1. 3Com 3c905, Adaptec 2940W and AMI Bios

I've been trying to set up my ethernet card to run under Linux on a
Gateway G6-266.  It's a 3Com 3C905 card.  I've gotten the updated driver
from the Vortex site, and I have got the kernel compiled.  The card is
detected by the kernel but it doesn't work under the rc.inet1 thing.  I
get the common error that my card is not installed or set up properly
and I also get a SIOCSFFLAGS: Try Again error.  I now think that my
problem is that my IRQ of my Adaptec 2940W adapter and 3Com card are
both 9.  However, my American Megatrends Bios editor will not let me set
the IRQ on either card.  Is there any way I can set it up so this card
will work, or any other way to change the setting in the bios?
Thanks for your time,
