Solaris 8 system hangs on boot

Hi,

I have Checkpoint NG installed on Solaris 8, and after rebooting I get the message:
"too much kernel memory request (39952384), will hang forever"
and the system hangs....

I have tried adding "set fw:fwhmem = 0x500000" to /etc/system, but it doesn't help.

Anyone got a clue?

Have a look at your /etc/system file and compare to another one that works.

Perhaps the Checkpoint install made some unrealistic assumptions?

The problem was not enough physical memory.

Even though Checkpoint says 64 MB is minimum, as soon as I merged in my previous Objects and Rulebases files, and rebooted, it took up more memory then was available.

I added 128 MB of physical memory, and it was fine.

that is consistent with the error.  These types of errors occur quite frequently.  As always when editing the /etc/system file make a backup copy onto another machine.

Regards, Nisus.
