I bought sparcstation lx which was in working condition loaded with redhat linux. I dont have monitor so have to use VT100 term from windows.
the box is connected to a sun 411 cd drive. I am trying to install
redhat 6.x sparc version:
a) Did any one on earth could succesfully configure sparc lx to work with regular monitor? After reading many articles about web (all talking about 13W cable), I bought one. But no luck. It wont work. Every one says , there are many 13W VGA cables and adapters but no one says which one to choose & how to select?
b) from hyperterm vt100, the machine can talk perfect. At OK prompt, I say boot cdrom. The installation loads very well. BUT
when it comes to formatting and partitionling, it hangs for ever.
Same with Suse 7 sparc version also.
I did autopartition as well as manual. But both have same problem, The slices would be created but while partitioning it hangs.
And finally if you say i have to change the drive then:
Note: The harddrive which I am using is seagate 2.4 GB drive. Its was very well working on intel machine both on unix and windows.
Question:I however, decided to change the hard drive. Can I replace it with 12GB drive? Again my q is , can Sparc LX support single 12 GB internal Drive??????
