mod6: It sounds like both nodes in the box are on:
BingoBoingo: <mod6> BingoBoingo: when you get back, let's walk you through getting the thing checked out. << I will check these things out with the power supplies again. Now what do I do with the Raid?
mod6: Well, let's deal with one thing at a time here... and I don't have the right answers for you about the raid questions.
mod6: If we can get the alarm off, then we can proceed on the rest of the configuration of things.
BingoBoingo: The 3COM card gets a little screen during the boot sequence. The card sees 4 drives, however the card prompts for no input at all.
BingoBoingo: <ben_vulpes> first q BingoBoingo is do the power supplies have status lights and what do they read? << They were one yellow and one green. Reseating them silenced the alarm and both are now green
BingoBoingo: <ben_vulpes> i would like this to not be a submarining expedition; gotta have comms down in the dc otherwise this is going to be exceedingly painful. << I will bring the terminal during the longer expeditions
BingoBoingo: I am not. I returned with news that ctrl+S does not appear to be the magic sequence on this card. Will paste the error message
BingoBoingo: Alright, I have paperwork here to get together for the residency meeting tomorrow afternoon, and spanish class in a couple hours. Will be awaiting instructions and necessary information with which to carry out instructions.
ben_vulpes: so BingoBoingo in theory you have a usb drive with a gentoo livedvd, you should be able to mount that and copy an expanded cuntoo.tar.gz to /home/gentoo/cuntoo , boot the new machine and then run ./install.sh against the raid device
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: has a kernel config for the supermicro mobo?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i do, though i did not expect to need to access it just nao, will have to uncrate and power up the box where it lives
ben_vulpes: mk then i think BingoBoingo next step is to figure out why the machines we have are not binding to the correct ips
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Aite, have a few hours a meat commitments, will dive again this evening to figure out the boxes that were nominally plug and play.
BingoBoingo: <ben_vulpes> so BingoBoingo in theory you have a usb drive with a gentoo livedvd, you should be able to mount that and copy an expanded cuntoo.tar.gz to /home/gentoo/cuntoo , boot the new machine and then run ./install.sh against the raid device << How does the expanded .tar.gz get onto the livedvd, etc. The box appears to only have two USB ports. One eats the keyboard.
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: mount it on your laptop and expand the t.gz onto the usb drive
BingoBoingo: Aite, and when stan digs out the kernel configs, that will skip compiling the whole OS down to GCC5 and 4.9.4?
ben_vulpes: well let's ask the master of electronics, asciilifeform do we want to provision a customer machine with trinque's cuntoo wip?
ben_vulpes: a machine for rental to a customer, more accurately
mimisbrunnr: Logged on 2018-02-24 20:03 ben_vulpes: diana_coman: let me know what you want on this box at your leisure; current plan is a gcc 4.9 gentoo with the defacto republican standard ban flags and python 2.7
diana_coman: so then I'll try meanwhile to get trinque's cuntoo on some machine of my own for now; any further /specific recipe that will be used ? (I'd like to replicate it as close as possible really)
