Has somebody experience with SUNPCI III on an ULTRA SPARC 10 ?
Posted on 2004-10-16
I've installed an SUNPCI III Card on an ULTRA SPARC 10. The Installation of the sunpci software 3.2.1 works fine, but after starting sunpci i received following messages in the /var/adm/messages:
Oct 16 17:55:08 sun005 sunpci3drv: [ID 668438 kern.notice] Hardware Reboot: X86
failed to respond. flags are 0
Oct 16 17:57:15 sun005 sunpci3drv: [ID 267625 kern.notice] smirate readback r
etry failed, rate is: 57
And in the SUNPCI-Window nothing happens. A W2K-Boot CDROM is inserted into the cdrom and the cdrom is attached to sunpci (i hope so. i done it manually via sunpci). But no Installation starts, also no BIOS was displayed.
I knew, that ULTRA SPARC 10 is not official supported for SUNPCI III Card. But perhaps, it will work. A SUNPCI II Card worked fine.
