Re: Re: debian woody on Z800 help

I have downloaded the oco modules from IBM website from the link that
you gave me and the mkinitrd2.sh script from the other link.  I copied
the qdio and qeth modules to the same directory as the mkinitrd2.sh and
then executed the script.  The debian s/390 install manual doesn't cover
this at all they only mention that you may need to create second initrd.
Here is what I get when kicking of the script.  Also thanks a bunch for
helping me debian on s/390 is a different animal.

.workhorse:/home/griswld/s390/s3901/s390-2# ./mkinitrd2.sh

I renamed qeth-2.4.17-s390-5.o to qeth.o
and qdio-2.4.17-s390-5.o to qdio.o as your email stated.

Thanks Again,
