Hi, In today's patchdiag.xref I noticed that the OBP (Flash PROM) patches for some machines have been withdrawn. The patch READMEs refer to a problem with certain machines on OBP firmware 4.30.3 being unbootable when a PCI card with an internal pci-pci bridge is installed in a certain PCI slot (CR 6890136). No idea if this affects a lot of people, but here's a list of the patches which have been marked as BAD: 140686-01: Hardware/PROM: Sun Blade 1500 (non Silver) Flash PROM Update 140687-01: Hardware/PROM: Sun Blade 1500 Silver Flash PROM Update 140688-01: Hardware/PROM: Sun Blade 2500 (non Silver) Sun Fire V250 Flash PROM Update 140689-01: Hardware/PROM: Sun Blade 2500 Silver Flash PROM Update 142700-01: Hardware/PROM: Sun Fire V210/V240 Netra 210/240 Flash PROM Update 142705-01: Hardware/PROM: Sun Fire V125 Flash PROM Update hth, Martin.
