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've just installed SLES9 on a IBM 7025 F50 with 2 processors. In
contrast to SLES8 there was no problem during the installation process.
The only problem is that YaST installed default kernel (non SMP). I've
installed the SMP kernel that ships with the distribution, ran mk_initrd
and made the relevant changes to yaboot. However this kernel won't boot
the machine, in fact the boot process aborts before the kernel is loaded
Is there anybody using SLES9 on a F50 with multi processor support?
I used to have performance monitoring API
(/usr/include/pmapi.h) available with AIX running on
the power3 box. But I could not find the file on SLES
7. Does anybody know if it is supported at all by even
later versions 8 and 9? Can someone who has SLES 9
running on power boxes please check wether the header
file exists ? Thanks.

I am trying to install SUSE LES 9 on an RS 6000 box
and I always get the following message
Calling quiesce ...
returning 0x01400000 from prom_init
and the machine hangs.
Does anybody have similar prior experience and know
how to deal with this? What does this 0x01400000 code
mean? What does "quiesce" do? I googled, and could not
find any documentation about that. There seems to be
plenty of booting problem with prom_init returning
this code, but I don't see how to address this during
installation. Any suggestions?

For fun, I installed SLES9 on my old B50. The installer worked
more-or-less out of the box except for a lot of scsi timeout
annoyances. I guess the reason is that the installer greps around
inside /proc/pci instead of using lspci. The other flaw was that the
installation of "lilo" (that is yaboot in disguise) did not work, and
I've not got the time to make it work yet. Booting it up with a rescue
cd shows that even lvm over software-raid was installed correctly
using nothing but the yast installer.
Next project: SLES9 on the 7248 *shiver*
