History: Recently I ran low on disk space, so I decided to replace my dinky
internal hard-drive (~200meg) with a high capacity one(~4gig).
Problem: After installing Solaris 2.4 (HW3/95) (with no warnings or error
messages), the system usually boots up to the point where the password
for root is entered. At this point, "segmentation violation, core dumped"
starts appearing along with an "Illegal instruction" (after some message
about "starting multicast"). If the installation was just the core system, I
usually reach a Login: prompt and sometimes can actually log on. Rebooting
at this point fails (sometimes with a complaint about not being able to run
/etc/init, sometimes with a panic). (similar things also happen when
installing and booting Solaris 2.2)
The Micropolis 3243 has its SCSI id = 3, and has a jumper installed to
disable SCSI interface parity checking. Currently the SCSI interface
terminators are installed and the "Drive provides terminator power.", and
"Drive supplies +5V to the bus via J1 pin 26"
I suspect some mis-configuration of the drive, but I'm not sure. Any
help or sugfgestions would be greatly appreciated.
