RE: linux on a 9406-520



fixed

Yes, by the time Power6 came out there was no longer an "I" box and a "P"
box. Power5 still had some of those. I think some of the Power6 boxes
might have been designated that way too, but you can now change them.

I'm running a Power 6. I have some Linux partitions that are not guested.
I don't remember ordering the drives special. Could be faulty memory.
Could be a difference between Power 5 and Power 6?

Thinking of a bare metal install.

Hi, Jerry:

Does this "spare 520" have IBM i (i5/OS) installed and running on it
already? If so, it should be possible to use Operations Navigator or
STRSST to create a second partition and then load and run Linux in that
LPAR ...

Or, are you talking about trying to load Linux on "the bare machine"?

Anyone done this?
