We have three Fujitsu-Siemens Primergy Econel 10 servers running SuSE 8.2.
I have tried to upgrade two of them to SuSE 9.1 to get the new improved Yast2
mail server configuration tool. But both computers freezes right after the
CDROM boot menu - when I choose install the screen goes black and nothing
happens even the Num-Lock button is dead....
I have tried "Installation", "Installation - without ACPI" and Installation -
Safe-setting" and tried different video resolutions 1024x768, 800x600 and
textmode (it defaults to 1024x768).
According to SuSE's the computer was certified for SuSE Linux 7.2 and had the
Motherboard FSC Systembaugruppe D1239 Chipset: VIA VT8633 [Apollo Pro266]
BIOS Phoenix BIOS v.4.06 Rev. 1.02.1239
CPU 1x Pentium III 933MHz / 256k Cache
RAM 1x 128MB SDRAM
Graphics ATI Technologies Inc. Rage XL AGP, 8MB Video SDRAM
Ethernet 1x Intel EtherExpress Pro100
SCSI 1x LSI Logic (Symbios) SYM53C895A
HDDs 1x Seagate ST320413A EIDE/UDMA100, 20GB
SOUND (onboard) VIA AC97 Audio Controller (rev 10)
Floppy 1x 3,5" Standard
Tqape drive 1x HP C1537A DDS-3 SCSI DAT drive
CD-ROM LTN483L, ATAPI 48x, 120kB Cache
PowerSupply 1x ASTEC AA21850, 145 W
Our servers don't have the Tape drive and I don't think they have the SCSI
controller either even though they make a mysterias "Adapter Scan ..." at
boot. There is nothing about a SCSI controller in the motherboard manual, so
I guess certified configuration had the controller in a PCI slot....
Have anyone seen similar problems??
