Re: is it a vmunix problem??


you may want to boot from cdrom, mount root_domain and look for vmunix. Should it be deleted, copy genvmunix to vmunix, reboot and build a new kernel.



ps. If you need more details, ask.

Re: is it a vmunix problem??

You may try booting an alternate kernel, and then recompile a new one:

boot -fi genvmunix -fl s
cp /path/to/new/kernel /vmunix

But is not normal that only the vmunix file is deleted, maybe you have others files deleted or corrupted. You may need to restore a backup or reinstall the system.

Re: is it a vmunix problem??

tsunami is the 'system chipset' for systems like DS20 and ES40.

What system is it?
What changed?
Did this system setup ever boot?

Try to boot a genvmunix and/or from CD as suggested.

If you are going to re-install
Why not go to a recent version (5.1B)
Any good reason to stay on Tru64 4.0G?

Good luck,
