HP C8000 Workstation Installation Instructions
Software installation instructions
If an ATI Fire GL X1 or ATI Fire GL T2-128 graphics card is installed, the hp C8000 Core Graphics
Software CD must be installed before using the workstation. Basic drivers for the ATI Fire GL X1 and ATI
Fire GL T2-128 are included in the Hardware Enablement Bundle (December 2003) and on factory-ignited
workstations. These drivers are supported only for installing the full drivers from the hp C8000 Core
Graphics Software CD.
To install the software from the CD:
1. Insert the C8000 Core Graphics Software for HP-UX 11i v1.0 Software CD (AB629-91001) into the
DVD-ROM or CD-ROM drive.
2. As root, make the directory you wish to mount the CD on.
Example: $ mkdir/CD
3. Determine the correct device file to use for the mount command. Choose the /dev/dsk/.... file
corresponding to the DVD or CD-ROM based on the output from running the following command as
root: /usr/sbin/ioscan -fun -C disk
If ioscan reports multiple CD and/or DVD-ROM devices, it will be necessary to try the mount command
with each device.
4. As root, mount the CD to a directory based on the device file from step 3.
Example: $ mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 /CD
5. Change the directory.
Example: cd /CD
6. Execute the "install" script by entering: ./install
This script is included on the CD and contains the appropriate swinstall command and options to install
Your hp C8000 Core Graphics software is now ready for use.
For Ignite-UX, the December 2003 (or later) release of Ignite-UX must be used on an Ignite server to boot
target workstations having an ATI Fire GL X1 or ATI Fire GL T2-128 console. In order to generate a
functioning and supported configuration, all of the prerequisite operating system software and all patches on
the hp C8000 Core Graphics Software CD must be ignited on the target workstation.
For important information on re-configuring an existing graphics card (for example, creating the proper
device files), refer to your workstation Technical Reference Guide or the Graphics Administration Guide.
These guides can be found on the HP website at http://www.hp.com/support/workstation_manuals.
