Linux APUS IDE/last_ipl problem survey
« on: July 20, 2002, 08:52:38 PM »
Many Linux APUS users have reported problems with the more recent Linux APUS kernels (2.4.14 and up). The symptoms of the problem are either non-bootable kernel and/or getting output messages such as:

   last_ipl[2] already set to 2f, now 2d!

To help us find out where this problem originates we, the developers of APUS, are conducting a poll to examine system configurations. If you are an APUS user and/or have tried the newer kernels please spend some time by using the follwing form.

Non Linux users can also help us. Simply download ( http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5907 ) the latest kernel (2.4.18) and the latest bootstrap program and then decompress them into the same directory. Download the test-ramdisk image and place that (still compressed) into the same directory. Go to that directory and run:

   bootstrap --apus -k vmlinux -r ramdisk.image.gz root=/dev/ram

This will boot a non harddisk basic Linux APUS system. Please leave feedback. You can see the current results here.

Your email-address you give here will only be used to get some specific informations of your problem/cofiguration if necessary and will not shown to other people than the APUS developers.

The poll can be found at:
