I've been runnin SCO Openserver 5 on a system with a Triton II MB
with 512K cache, a Pentium 75, and a 2gb Seagate disk on an adaptec
2940 host adapter.
Last week I decided to upgrade the processor to a 133mhz. I dropped
in the new CPU, changed two jumpers on the motherboard to indicate
the CPU was a 133, and rebooted.
All hell broke loose.
In a nutshell, it appears that SCO is attempting to retrieve data from
the host adapter faster than the host adapter can provide it. For instance,
I'll get read errors on files that I know are just fine (for instance, if
I attempt to re-link the kernel I'll get a "cannot read archive header from
.../pack.d/....". Other times the system will hang during the boot process,
or services will not start with various errors related to being unable to
read config files.
If I put the 75mhz chip back in, everything works fine.
Does anyone have any thoughts as to what my problem might be?
