SCO Unix, Xenix and ODT General FAQ

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

What are the symptoms of a drive geometry problem on SCO Unix?

Contributed by Bela Lubkin:

A formerly working boot drive gives "stage 1 boot failure" or "/boot not found"; or `divvy` shows the expected number of filesystems, but incorrect types (usually "NON-FS"), and they can't be mounted.
