Hi all,

First post.

Just acquired a "full-house" HP N4000 box with 8 550MHz CPUs, 12GB RAM and 2x 36GB drives.

The 2007.0 minimal-install cd booted perfectly using only one cpu and 2 GB RAM and I did a stage3 install and all updates via serial console and ssh.
I have compiled the kernel with 64bit and SMP support but it fails during boot with "Badness at arch/parisc/kernel/smp.c:322"

I have read on:

http://www.hispafuentes.com/hf-doc/HOWTOs/Linux-html-HOWTOs-20021014/HOWTO/PA-RISC-Linux-Boot-HOWTO/hardware.html

that these machines did not SMP under Linux but also read elsewhere on:

http://www.pateam.org/archive/logs/dmesg_N4000.txt

that it had been done successfully.

Anyone have experience with this problem?
The boot as shown in minicom: (Apologies for the length but details may be important)
Kernel config avl. if needed.

Thanks for your attention so far.
-P.

Hey phaedrus42,


Unfortunately, the current kernel isn't good for SMP. You will need to run in UP mode for now.

If you want to try out SMP, you need to have the latest kernel from GIT :
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/kyle/parisc-2.6.git

The following command will copy this kernel on your system (you need dev-utils/git) :
git-clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kyle/parisc-2.6.git parisc-2.6

Even tho, I'm not sure this will work fine since I've had issues lately with latest glibc and this patched SMP kernel.

The best would be to stick with <glibc-2.5 and this latest kernel.

Once 2.6.22 is out, I'll make it available in portage.

HTH,
Guy
