I've tried this with a couple of different machines, a couple of
different hard drives and with the drives as slave and master.
Reminds me - did you try different cables? Reseat all connectors?
Apple IDE chips can be quite touchy.
Yes, every simgle component was swapped out. I tried it on two
completely different computers (which were also tested working with
Mac OS 10.4).
Ok, had to ask.
Re: DIAGNOSTIC kernel
I was just using the 5.0.1 iso image as that was the easiest to
start the install before upgrading to 5.0_STABLE. I guess I could
try setting up a net boot environment.
A few weeks ago I had no problems installing 5.0 on a single 733MHz
G4, so I'll also try 5.0 vs 5.0.1 and doing the install on a single
733 G4 vs a dual 800 G4.
It works fine on my dual 500MHz G4, although I get occasional
DIAGNOSTIC panics during disk and network IO under high CPU load. Not
trivial to reproduce though, build.sh usually triggers it but it can
take anything between one and 24 hours. Looks a bit similar to kern/
41923 - I have never seen this problem on any of my single CPU macppc
