RE: Installation Question

It appears that Debian does not think the disks are usable because they are "reachable" from another partition.

When I did the IOCDS for our machine I actually had the two volumes for Linux reachable from four LPARs.  One of the four is linux, one is inactive, one has the volumes offline, and the last one is a coupling facility LPAR.

Does anyone have an IOCDS that shows 3390's properly defined for Debian?  Or any other suggestions?  The disks are definitely reachable from the LPAR into which I am loading Linux.

Thanks,   .........Larry

No idea. For me the available dasds have always been listed and I could 
just select them. AFAICT the last format should be correct. You may have 
to check that the devices really are available. I don't think I can help 
much with this.

Maybe this walktrough of an installation in the Hercules s390 emulator will 
help for reference:

I assume you mean "Start menu", but that's correct. The shell is available 
mainly for troubleshooting. You can use it to enter commands manually, 
check the syslog, etc.

You should only have *one* menu SSH session open, but you can have multiple 
shell sessions if you want.
