    Unanswered: System dump memory image in the swap device

    I have the operation system under SCO Unix 5.0.6. While booting the machine the following messages comes:

    There is a system dump memory image in the swap device.
    Do you want to save a copy of it ? (y/n)

    If "y" it wants tape or floppy to backup.

    After backup done the following message comes.

    Do you want to remove the dump from the swap device nowy/n)?

    If "y" or "n" the following messages comes.

    PANIC : k_trap – Kernel mode trap type 0x0000000E
    Trying to dump 65423 pages to dumpdev hd(1/41), 818 pages per ".".

    # safe to power off or any key to reboot

    I want to recover this kind of problems without disturbing any data.
    Any solution……..

    It appears to me your swap space is a little bit too small. Or SCO has problems writing big chunks to tape.

    AT THIS TIME SAY "NO", BECAUSE NOBODY CAN DEBUG THIS FILE

    Do you want to remove the dump from the swap device nowy/n)?

    AT THIS TIME SAY "YES"

    THIS IS A MESSAGE FOR POSSIBLE DAMAGE HARDDISK OR CONTROLLER

    Try to boot from your emergency floppydisk and then try to mount the filesystem with your data manualy by mount-command.

    I wish complete success.
