I put together a Tyan K7X-based machine last night (same AIX-7899W, running
dual Seagate Cheetahs), and the only problems I've had w/ the latest i386
1) xl0/xl1 ``command not completed'' every once in a while, although
the ports seem to work fine.
2) the machine hangs after probing the onboard IDE controller
(disabling pciide and wdc gets along w/ things.. but obviously
this doesn't help if you want to run ATA devices).
3) npx0 post-probe seemed to hang the machine. I disabled it, but
I haven't looked at the implications of this.
I just went through a ``make build'' without any apparent instability. I
can send you my dmesg if you're interested.
