for your reply. Even though the SCSI disk partitioning went perfect
and all partitions are fully initialized, and the base Woody (3.0) is
installed, I still get this forever reported message at boot time:
0 abort (pid 0) timed out – resetting
is being reset for host 0 channel 0
: pid = 0 reset_flags = 2 serial_number=(increasing numbers)
serial_number_at_timeout= (increasing numbers)
three disks (9 gig, 9gig, 17 gig) and a CDROM. No external SCSI bus
terminator is being used. Should I add one?
and kind regards,
have a RS/6000 (43P) 7248 running etch [4.0] (kernel 2.6.18)
was a install for the 7248 in the debian site..using 3.0

Debian install on IBM 43P boot problems...
I`m trying to revive an old IBM 43P for a
customer into using it with Debian 3.0 (that`s the only version I was
able to get bootable floppy images).
After the successful partionning and
installation of the base OS, during boot, it is stuck displaying
infinite messages about the SCSI Controller 0, trying to reset it, and
Has anyone been successful in such an
installation on an old IBM 43P?
