Verify connections, cables, plug everything and take a look if display some error codes.

...reboot.

Partitions requisites for IVM

The LUN reserve_policy must be set to “no_reserve” on the hdisks (on both JS22s) before the logical partition is created. Open a virtual terminal for the VIOS Partition (Partition 1) from the IVM GUI and type the following:


# chdev –dev hdisk<number> -attr reserve_policy=no_reserve


To verify this attribute has been changed type the following:


# lsattr –dev hdisk<number> -attr

Smit Fast Paths

You can access SMIT tasks and sub-menus directly by using a fast path.


Example: smit mkuser takes you directly to the menu Add a User.
At any menu in SMIT, you can show the fast path to that menu by pressing the F8 key.
This table is pretty good to print them and keep it.

Avahi/mDNSResponder war

If you're using gnome and trying to compile something like media-sound/amarok in your gentoo, you know what I mean.


To fix this, just enable avahi USEFLAGS for kdelibs, so kde will not use mDNSResponder and you'll be able to use amarok inside gnome (sorry guys, but gnome lacks a good media player, and yes, I also test every mediaplayer like exaile, etc.).
