I am in big troubles. I have Compaq Proliant 5000 with 2 Pentium Pro
166 MHz, 128 Megs of Memory, 4 x 4.2 Gbyte disks with Smart2/p
controller. Also a Netflex3/p NIC. The disks are configured as one
logical volume raid 5 with no Hot Spare. On top of this, I have Open
Server 5.0.2 with SMP and Oracle Workgroup Server 7.3. I am also
runninc RM/COBOL applications. A few time ago (1 month) I increased
the Buffer Cache to 39 Mbytes as SCO DOCTOR advised me. In fact, this
memory was not in use and the disks were. I had to change manually the
PLOWBUF (buffers bellow 16Meg) to 10, so the system dont show me a
warning saying it can't allocate the configured low bufs. Since then,
the machine is PANICiing regularly. I already did a patch through _fst
to the APIC driver and upgarded to the latest BIOS from compaq. I also
upgraded to the latest EFS from Compaq (5.13c), but the machine still
panics. Unfortunately, I can't see the register dump. Each time I am
writing it, the machine reboots.

A good thing that happened after all the upgrades, was that I am now
able to run AFPS over netbeui on the Compaq NIC.....

Is there anybody with a GOOD ideia of what can I do ???????

1. SMP Linux 2.0.32 on a Compaq Proliant 5000

Hi Folks,

  I have a Compaq Proliant 5000 with 2 Intel 200 Mhz processors that I
installed Slakware Linux (kernel 2.0.32) on last night.... Following
some instructions I found on the Web, I uncommented the SMB=1 in the
main makefile and rebuilt and installed the kernel.....

  Unfortunately, it continues to only see one processor (how do you tell
other than to look at the boot log?).... Does anyone have any clues??
It's the first time I've tried to install Linux on an SMP machine.....
Any ideas or reference would be welcome....
