Re: Problems booting on a Alpha1000A
Actually I fought through this problem last week
>>>boot dva0 -file linux -flags "root=/dev/fd0 prompt_ramdisk=1 load_ramdisk=1"
Or something like that.
I think I actually ended up at the aboot prompt
aboot> linux root=/dev/fd0 prompt_ramdisk=1 load_ramdisk=1
Which actually worked - the floppy driver seems a bit flakey so it took more
than one try.
My problem was my TGA0/E3 so back to Tru64 until I get a good video card.
