I got some problems (disk access denied, bus errors,...) that led me to
go into single user mode and fsck my partitions. I noticed then that
there were some directories created in the tmp directory, called "dev"
and "etc", and one file in the / directory called "success" with 0
length. At reboot, these files disapeared. Does anybody know if this
could be a sign of a hacked computer ? I mean could someone have
installed a rootkit or some such ?
I'm not paranoid but this indeed seems strange.

I'm trying to create a filesystem with more than one device. Any thoughts on what block count I should use? Tia.
nvlnxt22:~ # mke2fs -j /dev/dasde1 /dev/dasdf1 /dev/dasdg1 /data
mke2fs 1.28 (31-Aug-2002)
mke2fs: bad blocks count - /dev/dasdf1
Recently I have purchased the above computer, no VGA card but an
original IBM InfoWindow II 3153 connected to the 1st serial port.
After having updated it's firmware and the firmware of it's Service
Processor and having RTFMed lots of docs related to the install of Linux
onto such a beast I am in front of the following problem:
I have the original SuSE Linux PPC 7.3
According to the docs the second CD is CHRP bootable.
I enter into OpenFirmware, Multiboot, Install from, CDROM
The OpenFirmware recognize the SuSE Linux CD, I can choose SuSE Linux
PPC 7.3 to install. While booting I get the an error similar to the
>chrpboot gunzipping (0x00010000 <- 0x00416470:0x00534a7c)...done
>>2908456 bytes 47376 bytes of heap consumed, max in use 40944
>start address = 0x10000
>instantiating rtas at 00600000 ... done
>copying OF device tree...done
>Calling quiesce ...
>Unexpected Firmware Error:
>DEFAULT CATCH!, code=fff00200 at %SRR0: 0027c290 %SRR1: 00083000
According to some infos from the Internet the bootable kernel is too
Then I found the possibility to create boot floppies:
>Copy the kernel zImage.floppy-install.chrp to a DOS-formatted floppy
>mcopy zImage.floppy-install.chrp /floppy/zimage
>Copy the file ramdisk.floppy-install.gz with dd to a second floppy
>dd if=ramdisk.floppy-install.gz of=/dev/fd0
>Reboot your computer, insert the DOS-formatted floppy disk, and enter
>>the following at the OpenFirmware prompt:
>boot floppy:,zimage root=0200
boot floppy:,zimage root=0200 load_ramdisk=1 ramdisk_size=128000
I created the floppies, the RS/6000 seems to boot up, but when it asks
for the root floppy the boot procedure stops even if I put the second
one (containing the raw ramdisk) and press enter.
The computer tell me that there is no root floppy in the drive and
reboot after 180 seconds...
Did someone meet this before? Maybe there is a workaround somewhere?
