Can I run 10.2 on a B2600



  • 1. HP950 Multi-Function Printer - Fax Problem - Need Help
    This may not be the right group - but I'll try anyway since I can't find another nor can I find a way to email HP. My HP 950 always acts the same when I try to send a fax. No matter what number I am calling it is always rejected as 'busy' at least once, and sometimes two=three times, before my fax is finally sent. I have checked and the recipient's number is not busy. So I know something must be set wrong here. Can anyone help? Either with a suggestion or with the proper newsgroup, or a HP email address for Customer Support? Thanks
  • 2. Pavilion ZT1170 LCD very hard to see
    Hello to all, I can only get the LCD on the Pavilion to display vague outlines of the desktop. Attaching an external monitor works fine. Do LCD's just crap out? Is it possible the back light is not getting as bright as it should. Can a back light even be replaced? Thanks in advance for any help you can give. John
  • 3. How to access BIOS on HP Pavilion 753C
    So I'm trying to fix my parents computer (HP Pavilion 753C). HP must have hidden the BIOS info that comes up at the beginning of startup. I'm assuming that if you knew the correct key to press you could still access BIOS. Does anyone know what key(s)? I already tried [del]. I dont have much XP experience. I want to be able to boot off CD, reformat HD, then reinstall everything. Thanks in advance for all help, Jason

Can I run 10.2 on a B2600(RISC machine).

Our requirement is such that we need to have 10.2 and 11i on the same

I plan to buy two harddrives and install the two different versions on
seperate drives and boot to one them.

We are looking for low end machine that would run both 10.2 and 11i.

Thanks in advance

Yes, but 10.20 is no longer supported. You will need the last release of
10.20 media to do the install. December 1999, I believe was the release

2.Problem getiing IBM MQSeries V5.2 to run on HPUX 10.20

Hi Folks

We're trying to get the MQseries V5.2 to run on an HPUX 10.20 box.

We can get the queue up and running but when we start to get the
channels going, the runmqchl and runmqchi processes coredumps.

The strange thing is we have it running successfully on another HPUX
10.20 box with the same configurations (Hardware and software).

Any insight into this would be great.  IBM support no longer supports
this product on HPUX 10.20 and recommends that we go with Websphere MQ
5.3 which only runs on HPUX 11.0

Problem solved!!

Thanks to all who responded to my post. Especially to you Jim. You
were hot on the trail of this turkey. It turned out that the vendor's
installation instructions recommend kernel parameter settings that are
insufficient. The problem with finding the solution was that that the
error indications were misleading. We were left chasing rabbits. But
we've stumbled onto some kernel parameter settings that work.

It is crucial that we keep this application going because without it
we'd have to get rid of HPUX. We like HPUX but the vendor only
supports Windows these days and they're pushing us to convert. We're
told by the vendor that they have almost no customer interest in Unix.
I suspect they like selling all the client licenses and upgrades for
every user PC and the enhanced support dependency, if the truth be
told. This makes HPUX an endangered species at this facility. It
frustrates me but there's nothing we can do but try to keep the system
going. We have in-house developed applications that rely on this app.
Our apps will have to be converted if/when we're eventually forced to
move to Windows. Hopefully we can make it another 5 years. I may be
retired by then if this keeps up. I have a certain disdain for
Windows. I hope Linux comes to the rescue. Anybody have any idea how
far into the future we might be able to continue upgrading this app as
we have to 11.00? Will this be the end?

If anyone is interested, the application is a programming interface to
an industrial control system made by Fisher Control Systems. We use it
to read pressures, temperatures, flows, etc from industrial processes.

Thanks again to all, especially Jim, for sharing your time and brain

5.C200: HpUx 10.2 Non-HP Disk Boot problem


 Problem.. Installed HpUx 10.2 from the correct media onto a Quantum 
18.2gb Scsi Disk. Comes to boot it... I get IPL.. it gets as far as 
booting hpux... and it stops, don't even get the usual booting numbers. 
Yet the same procedure works for a Seagate 2GB disk with HP Firmware on 

 Am I correct in saying I cannot boot from a non-hp firmwared disk?
