Does anyone know what the halt codes on a 233MHz Alphastation 255 mean?
We have one of tehse systems with 32 MB memory and every so often it will
come up with an error message and shut down (or come up with the error
message when it is deliberately shut down).
When deliberately shut down with the 'shutdown -h' now command, the
CPU 0: Halting... (transferring to monitor)
CP - SAVE_TERM routine to be called
CP - SAVE_TERM exited with hlt_req = 1, r0 = 00000005.00000000
halted CPU 0
halt code = 5
HALT instruction execusted
When it spontaneously shuts down (crashes), the halt code is usually 7 and
these is a message about it being in PAL mode.
A separate question: I have obtained a 128 MB memory upgrade for this
system, which consists of 4 x 32 MB 72-pin SIMMs. The existing memory
consists of 4 x 8 MB SIMMS in bank 0. When I take the existing 32 MB
memory out, where should I put the 4 new SIMMs? Should all 4 SIMMs in
the upgrade go into bank 0 or should some go into bank 1?
