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*
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you
give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in
judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
