I have just downloded and tried to install Fixpak 15, as found in the package
that Aaron Lawrence uploaded on Hobbes. My first attempt was via my
maintenance partition but fservice hung at the point where it checks for
adequate space on the disk.
I then booted my main boot partition (at fixpak 8) and everything progressed
smoothly and I got the message that service had completed and to reboot in
order to service locked files. The reboot proceded normally and reported that
locked files had been successfully processed whereapon the system crashed.
Every subsequent attempt to boot resulted in the message that the system could
not open the config.sys file or that it could not find the file ALTF1MID.SCR.
Any keyboard input after this point simply lead to a repitition of the
So I booted my maintenance partition again and managed to get fservice to
complete a backout to fixpak 8, and everything is back to normal. Any one have
any ideas as to what is going on and why Fixpak 15 won't apply. This is the
first fixpak I've ever had problems with. Before this I had installed fix 1
with floppies, fix 5 with the Lotus SS CD-rom, fix 6 with quickfix, and fix 8
with BMT micro's fixpak CD.
Any input or suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
P.S. Any reports that fixpak 15 is incompatible with the Danis506.add driver?
I am using it and it just occurred to me that it could be the problem.
