>From what I read it does appear that MaxiLife was linked to an HP utility partition. However, I also have come across some info that implies the lm_sensors package works with MaxiLife sensors.
Has anyone used lm_sensors? Or worked with Linux and an HP with MaxiLife?
Right now I have k12ltsp 4.2.1 installed and working, but it won't boot without a couple of keystrokes during the boot routine (i.e., F1 to resume, etc.).

From what I can decipher from googling, apparently MaxiLife is some sort of hardware monitoring and diagnostics tool used on the Vectra series. I can't find any reference to this error code or what it means. Has anyone ran across this before? This is the first Vectra I've toyed with.
