error message during install
Whilst installing a noname+udb machine, I'm plagued with
an error message I haven't seen mentioned on the list before.
The solution seems pretty obvious - replace my true-parity
ram (which is what the printout that shipped with the system
said it *required*, grr...) with the ECC variety - but I wish to
get confirmation that this is indeed the cause of the error
before I go shelling out the money for new ram.
- install was done from floppy using kernel from 1997-10-05
with the disks from the 1997-08-12 directory
- system is the Multia variety
lca: machine check: (la=0xfoo,pc=0xbar)
Reason: correctable ECC error (short frame, retryable, dc_stat=0):pn
Correctable read error to memory occured at adderss 0xbla
Confirmation of the obvious appreciated,
