Double Panic - SCO

Hi all, My system is using SCO Operserver Enterprise System 5.0.5m running on Compaq Proliant server with Compaq EFS 5.38a. Recently the system always halted and show a message "Double Panic ....". I check the hardware config using the command "hwconfig -c" and then shows vec 13 is conflict. I know that vec 13 is fpu and Compaq Wellness Driver. Anybody over there have idea about this? Also, any diagnostic program in SCO or compaq EFS can check any problem in my hardware or software. Rgs, Man....

    Default Double Panic

    Hi all,

    My system is using SCO Operserver Enterprise System 5.0.5m running on Compaq
    Proliant server with Compaq EFS 5.38a. Recently the system always halted and
    show a message "Double Panic ....".
    I check the hardware config using the command "hwconfig -c" and then shows
    vec 13 is conflict.
    I know that vec 13 is fpu and Compaq Wellness Driver.
    Anybody over there have idea about this? Also, any diagnostic program in SCO
    or compaq EFS can check any problem in my hardware or software.

    Rgs,

    Man.

    What happened to the great stability of Openserver that I've been
    reading about?

    Come on, Joe, this is (used to be :-) a tech newsgroup when people
    report about their problems with SCO's OSes so I think it's pretty
    normal to see messages such as this.

    Usually (but I saw some threads in the past) people do not post here
    saying "Wow, my OS5 system's got an uptime of <insert a very long period
    of time year> and counting and I'm very happy with that"; rather, they
    post their problems and people TRY TO HELP 'EM OUT.

    If you're in the position to point me to an operating system that
    __NEVER__ experiences any problems and a public newsgrup where to find
    evidences of this, then I'd love to know (and sell) it :-)

    Best,
    Roberto

    It still needs to be configured correctly. Again, this may be very picky, but
    an EFS is a third party written and tested driver. It is not Openserver per se.
    Compaq released EFS 5.38a, discovered a problem with it and quickly released
    EFS 5.38b. IIRC, the driver is about 3 years old.

    Most people do see the stability of Openserver, so much so that they don't assume
    there are or ever have been bugs in the code or drivers. Hence, instead of just
    updating things they post a question.
