First, please be a little patient ... I am coming from AIX and starting to work on Linux.
I have installed a Power7 partition with Linux ( SLES 11 ). Per the instructions in this forum, I tried to follow the instructions to install Oprofile listed in the following URL:
The installation of the RPM
ibm-power-repo-version.ppc.rpm completed fine.
However the next steps using zypper to continue the installation started to give errors.
1) installing the package "zypper install ibm-power-nonmanaged-sles11" completed, but with a mount error somewhere along the install :
Failed to mount 22.214.171.124:/nim/install/linuxsuse_sles11_SP3_GMC2 on /var/adm/mount/AP_0xnF1RMv: Mounting media failed (mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 126.96.36.199:/nim/install/linuxsuse_sles11_SP3_GMC2)
Abort, retry, ignore? [a/r/i/?] (a): r
Failed to mount 188.8.131.52:/nim/install/linuxsuse_sles11_SP3_GMC2 on /var/adm/mount/AP_0xfdoilq: Mounting media failed (mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 184.108.40.206:/nim/install/linuxsuse_sles11_SP3_GMC2)
In trying to debug the problem I found out that server 220.127.116.11 *does not* export any filesystem as "/nim/install/linuxsuse_sles11_SP3_GMC2" but the only "*sles*" mount is : "/nim/install/linuxsuse_sles11_SP3_GM" ( it is missing "C2" at the end ):
# showmount -e 18.104.22.168 | grep sles /nim/install/linuxsuse_sles11_SP3_GM (everyone)
I after 2 or 3 retry attempts I ignored this error and the installation seemed to continue installing other packages. I was unclear whether *all* packages were installed correctly given the mount errors above.
2) Going on to step 3, "
zypper install advance-toolchain-atversion-runtime" gave again the same mount problems as before, but this time this install failed.
I looked in the forum, but found no information on mount failures from zypper during this install process. Has anyone encountered these errors and found a solution ?
I would appreciate any responses.
