Genera 8.1 CD-ROM Problem
I am attempting to do an initial CD-ROM installation of Genera 8.1 on our
XL400. After installing the CD-ROM hardware (a Sun CD-ROM drive), I
reset the XL400 and followed the instructions to load the FEP kernal from the
XL bootstrap tape. The SCSI ID of the CD-ROM drive was 4. After powering up
the CD-ROM drive and inserting the CD-ROM, I did a disk restore:
FEP: Disk Restore 0 "chaos|3033" :source CART11: :format no :create paging
files no :standalone site no :query no
And then got the message:
[1991-09024 18:52;48 (GMT):: Restoring disk unit 0 from CART11:...
Superseding condition=>disk unit 0 at SCSI ID 4, status: 2, sense:5,
additional-sense:32, sector NIL, reason: NIL
[Error: Error while opening CART11: UMAKE-INSTANCE on: closed NIL
<<Error printing #<DTP-ARRAY 37000555040>>> with REFERENCE-COUNT = NIL]
I tried this with the CD-ROM drive SCSI ID=6 also (CART13:) with the
Has anyone else had a similar problem (and/or a solution)?
Elsewhere Symbolics claims to have qualified only the Apple CD-ROM drive.
Is it likely that my Sun CD-ROM drive is the problem and that I should go
to plan B of using the CD-ROM on the Sun and reading over the network?
Thanks in advance,
