I installed SuSE 7.0 Linux for PPC on an RS/6000 43p model 150.
Before installing SuSE I had AIX 4.3.3 in that box so, I had to format the hard disk with the AIX diagnostics CD, because if you don't do that, you cannot install SuSE.
Later I had to install again AIX in that box, but I'm not able. I've tried to format the hard disk, but is useless.
Has anyone tried to install SuSE in an RS/6000 and after, tried to install AIX? I'm not even able to restore the backup copy of the operating system done with mksysb (aix smitty)
fdisk can not handle that AIX label, it segfaults in the background and yast doesnt like that. dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX for a few seconds on console 2.
Then try again.
Its possible that AIX can not handle the DOS label on the disk? I had not problems with reinstalling AIX here. Maybe you have to clear the partition again with the command above.
