Lets try this SUMMARY again, but with the right title!
> My original question was:
> Folks --
> last week I posted a question and summary concerning the correct drivers
> for the SBus Prestoserve and Sol 2.4. Driver version 2.4.1 and patch
> 100714-03 was the answer.
> I have had no luck making this work, however. The driver loads just fine, but
> the patch causes the system the panic and crash. This happened in 2 seperate
> systems (an SS1 and SS2) a total of 3 times with virgin loads of Solaris. I
> sorta suspect a bad Prestoserve, but this board worked in the system
> while running SunOS 4.1.2 just fine.
> Anyone got an idea?
> Thanks to all who replied:
> Carsten Hennig
> Bill Hiscox
> Andre Boily
> Pete A. Zaitcev
> The consensus it that the 101714-03 patch breaks the Prestoserve on a
> SPARCstation 1 like mine, and that several people use the unpatched version
> of the Prestoserve drivers (2.4.1) on Solaris 2.4 without problems.
> Sun field service was not aware of any board revision issues, so
> I passed on that possibility.
> So this morning, I tried the same and will keep my fingers crossed!
> Thanks to all who replied!!
