I installed 2.9 on a new (to me) SS20. Everything was good until I
installed 3 new 32M memory sticks. It rebooted and was working fine
until it suddenly went into a kernal panic. It turned out that 1 of
sticks was not properly seated. I reseated all three new ones and
turned it back on, but now it won't let me reboot; instead I get a
message Data Store Error. Since I can't even get OpenBSD working, this
is more of a hardware issue, but I'm hoping that someone can tell me
to clear the error. I'm guessing that I can remove and reseat all the
memory and that the error will clear, but I'm not sure.
Have you made sure your simms are in the correct (lowest numbered) slots
and in ascending sizes order?
Thanks to all who replied. Before I wrote, I went to Sun Docs and
MemoryX.com (which has good instructions on the order to install
dsimms). As it turned out a previous owner had randomly installed 2 64M
dsimms along with 3 32M dsimms. I put 1 in slot j201 and left the other
in slot j303. Also found another unseated dsimm. Lesson: always check
used equipment. Again, thanks.
