I am trying to install OpenBSD2.7 on a Pentium90, Intel processor, Intel
Zappa (I think) motherboard using Triton chipset, a 1 GB Quantum harddisk.
I have tried installing over FTP, and I have tried to download everything,
write it on a CD and install from that.
What happens is: I partition the disk, set up network, and get to the point
where I install the packages. When installing and unpacking, the bar-graph
stops for a second or two, and the following appears:
pciide0:0:0: Bus-Master DMA error: missing interrupt, status=0x21
wd0a: DMA eror writing fsbn xxxxxx of xxxxxx-xxxxxx (wd0 bn xxxxxx; cn xxx
tn x sn xx), retrying
wd0: soft error (corrected)
After this the install continues, writes a few bytes and the message
reappears. After a few times the install program hangs, and I have to
Does anybody have any idea of what is going on, and what I can do about it?
Any help would be appreaciated
