    HP-UX on ES40? Think Tru64 UNIX

  3. Re: Problem with disks on ES40

    To follow up, he was attempting to boot the Gentoo 2008.0 livecd,
    which lacked support for this hardware.

    Blackb|rd (in #gentoo-alpha on Freenode) is creating him a new ISO,
    which should remedy the situation.

    O-Zone should have replied to his own topic when the problem was
    identified and a solution put in place.

    Yes, i've already read that ut is not so useful. Problems seems that
    Adaptec SmartRAID V Controller is based under i2o. I've tried with i2o
    modules without success, as you can see there:

    [dmesg]

    Yes, i've tried the ISO by Blackbird with i2o support but we don't
    resolve the problem. Seems that DPT support for alpha (64bit) is not
    available...
