Re: Debian Wheezy Xen HP-Tools on DL380 G7 - hpasmlited general protection fault


Haven't tried it for myself but maybe the Ubuntu Packages work since the have been built on Kernel 3.2. No idea if it really works but you should give it a try. Otherwise you would need to wait for HP to rebuild the Packages on Wheezy since HP currently has only Squeeze builds.

Hi @all,

I have a problem with HP-Tools on Debian/Wheezy/amd64 running
under Xen-Hypervisor on a HP DL380 G7 system.

The hp-health package cannot be installed,
because the hpasmlited crashes with an general protection fault.

Has anyone solved / circumvented this problem ?
eg. some kernel/hypervisor acpi options o.ä. ..

Is there a newer (Beta-)Version available ?

I got the debian packages from the following site:
