Description Chris Ricker 2003-01-06 05:13:46 UTC
I'm messing with installations into hercules. For hercules, I have the following
contents in /etc/hercules/hercules.prm:

root=/dev/ram0 ro ip=off DASD=120
chandev=ctc0,0x600,0x601 CHANDEV=ctc0,0x600,0x601
DNS= SEARCHDNS=example.com:test.example.com

When I start a 7.2 install under hercules, all these parameters get read
automatically -- the ctc is properly configured, the host name is set, etc.

When I start a rawhide install under hercules, none of these parameters get set.
I have to configure a ctc network connection manually, etc.

I have been able to install to hercules using the current 7.2 s390 (31-bit)
install trees:


Try using this instead of rawhide ... :)

Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2003-01-06 20:03:14 UTC
Yeah, I can do that (and it works). It seems like rawhide is broken / regressed
though, since the installer in 7.2 reads the ctc settings automatically, but the
installer in rawhide doesn't unless I manually specify them

It might just be a quirk of hercules though -- I don't have access to real s/390
to see what happens there

glad to hear it is working for you ... remember, rawhide == unsupported (and if
it breaks, you get to keep the pieces ... :) )
