Here are some specific ways you could proceed:



Caveat: Personally, I have never installed or used linux in any flavor or I'd offer more help.

But it looks like debian.org has a lot of helpful information.

IP address change needed on a AlphaServer DS10


First, identify the NIC you wish to change; use:

$ MC LANCP <ret>

> SHOW DEVICE


Next, use the menu driven utility "TCPIP$CONFIG", to set your desired IP address etc:

$ @TCPIP$CONFIG <ret>

Option 1 - core environment

Option 2 - Interfaces (then select your NIC or the IP Addr to change)

Option 2 - add/change a Primary address on *** (where *** is your NIC).

DS10 with SBS PCI Expansion


Version 7.1-2 is an older version of the OS. I will have to check, but I think that V7.2 will resolve this. What version of TCP/IP are you using? Back in the day when I supported TCP and VMS, there were some timing issues that causes odd behavior. If you can provide the details about your configuration, I can check and get back to you. If necessary, an examination of a forced crashdump may be needed.

A rare opportunity to work with VMS again!!

Good stuff.

DS10L AlphaServer CPU Fan Failure


The answer is to get hold of a high-speed case fan. I used a Scythe s-flex 80mm which has a +/- 5% RPM of 2800. rearrange the pins or use a choc-block such that yellow -> black, red -> yellow, black -> red. Hey presto.
Works for me.

Debian on p655


Are you over thinking this? Have you checked the source and target media's file systems for 1: errors and 2: suitability of file system format? Have you confirmed the integrity of the source files? Questions like this can seem simplistic but when diagnosing any problem always start at the beginning. You are using an distro installer that is suitable for an IBM p655's architecture.
