Thanks Mr. Gerhard for your attentiion
I did a tape as recomended in the IBM manual and record the files in that order:
kernel.image (lrecl 1024
kernel.param (lrecl 1024
kernel.initrd (lrecl 1024
The kernel.param file has only one parameter, "ro" but we suppose its
not complete and we include a device parameter for dasd and the root
parm. The file become the same as used with Suse 7.2 that works, at
least for IPL.
On IPL, after the system read the kernel.image, the first and unique message we
receive at mainframe console is
IPL Error. Disable wait PSW 000a000000000000 .
I think that the image for tape is corrupted. I didn't find any person
that have used tapes for IPL. I have to because for the model of 390 I have this
is the only way to use Linux in standalone machine (withou VM).
By the way, the problem is the same if I try to do the IPL from tape under CMS.
Best regards and thanks.
