Re: Debian 3.0 on AS1000A 5/333 won't shutdown/reboot

Hi David!

Can you still access to your old kernel ?
If you can , you have to boot in 2.2.20 and use the /dev/srm device to set the srm environment variables.

Thx for answering!

I think I've missed something ... ;-)

But first - I think I can get back to 2.2.20, I'll try tonight.

I don't have /dev/srm. What is it, how can I create it and which environment variables?

Regards, Jens

I successfully installed Debian 3.0 on my Alphaserver 1000A 5/333.
Booting/Rebooting with aboot and Kernel 2.2.x works fine.

After i installed kernel-2.4.18-generic I have the problem that the
machine - shuts down to SRM and then
- tries to boot again with flag 0
- normal SRM-commands (i.e. set, boot) don't work anymore

To boot automatically I set 'boot_osflags 0' and 'auto_action boot'.

Even a 'boot <cdrom-device>' doesn't work anymore, because it calls the
flag 0 automatically

My questions:
- What would help to get a 'clean' shutdown/reboot?
- Is it possible to cancel the aboot-sequence at startup to set
'boot_osflags <empty>' (is a 'set boot_osflags' enough?)?

Thanks in advance,
