    SubjectUpgraded to 2.1.107 ... almost succesfully.
    Date
    Hi,


    To all who responded to my request for help on upgrading to 2.1.107.
    Especially thanks to Alan - your reply rocks, it wasn't necessary to go
    all the way!

    I just compiled and rebooted my new 2.1.107 kernel. It almost went
    smooth ...


    1) MODULES: When doing a 'depmod -a' it complains about 'unresolved
    symbols'. I guess upgrading to modutils-2.1.something will help?
    (Ok, silly question).

    2) IO-APIC: I found this in the boot-log:

    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: ENABLING IO-APIC IRQs
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: init IO_APIC IRQs
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: IO-APIC pin 0broken BIOS, changing pin 11
    to edge
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: broken BIOS, changing pin 12 to edge
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: broken BIOS, changing pin 15 to edge
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: not connected.

    ... I've never seen IO-APIC's reports before, so I am a bit worried
    about 'broken BIOS' & 'not connected'. What do they mean? Do I need
    to worry?

    3) SCSI: I also get these on 2.0.34:

    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: (scsi0:-1:-1:-1) Bad scbptr 255 during
    SELTO.
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: (scsi0:-1:-1:-1) Referenced SCB 255 not
    valid during SELTO.
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: SCSISEQ = 0x12 SEQADDR = 0x9 SSTAT0
    = 0x15 SSTAT1 = 0x88
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: (scsi1:-1:-1:-1) Bad scbptr 255 during
    SELTO.
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: (scsi1:-1:-1:-1) Referenced SCB 255 not
    valid during SELTO.
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: SCSISEQ = 0x12 SEQADDR = 0x9 SSTAT0
    = 0x15 SSTAT1 = 0x88

    ... but this time the server doesn't crash - T H A N K S! (BTW: what
    does the errors mean? They make the kernel panic ... Is it bad
    hardware?)

    4) RPC: nfs/mount needs to be upgraded. But why does RPC complain?

    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: nfs warning: mount version older than
    kernel
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: portmap: RPC call returned error 111
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: RPC: task of released request still queued!
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: RPC: (task is on xprt_pending)

    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: RPC: (task is on xprt_pending)

    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: portmap: RPC call returned error 111
    Jul 6 17:46:01 enjoy linux: RPC: task of released request still queued!

    Jul 6 17:46:10 enjoy fspool[290]: started
    Jul 6 17:46:10 enjoy fspool[290]: faxmachine: rlis3.fleggaard.dk
    Jul 6 17:46:10 enjoy fspool[290]: root: /home
    Jul 6 17:46:10 enjoy fspool[290]: running

    5) In 2.0.33-days I had this line in my /etc/login.defs, which allows me
    to access files > 1Gb:

    ULIMIT 4194304

    ... if I put this in my /etc/login.defs, the fs complains when copying
    even small files (<1K!) from filesystem to filesystem. Setting the
    ULIMIT to the default-value (2097152) "almost" solves the problem - I
    can create/copy files up to 1Gb, but I can't create/copy files >1Gb.
    How do I express 'unlimited' in ULIMIT?



    Rodger Donaldson: you've heard about Unifix. When 2.1.107 boots, it
    tells you in nice letter: "POSIX conformance testing by UNIFIX" ...
    it's the same firm ;o)


    Best regards,

    Brian ("crossing my fingers that the upgrade to 4 CPU's will be as
    smooth as the upgrade to 2.1.107 ..." ;o)
