The device /dev/srm allows you to set the srm's variables from linux.
I think you that
'echo 0 > /dev/srm/boot_osflags ' under linux is equivalent to the
'set boot_osflags 0' under SRM.
the /dev/srm device should be enabled in the kernel. Maybe you have to
compile a new kernel to enable it.
I'd like to compile a kernel, but I couldn't find any statement
regarding '/dev/srm' - does anyone have a hint for me where to find the
parameter to enable 'dev/srm'?
I successfully installed Debian 3.0 on my Alphaserver 1000A 5/333.
Booting/Rebooting with aboot and Kernel 2.2.x works fine.
After i installed kernel-2.4.18-generic I have the problem that the
machine - shuts down to SRM and then
- tries to boot again with flag 0
- normal SRM-commands (i.e. set, boot) don't work anymore
To boot automatically I set 'boot_osflags 0' and 'auto_action boot'.
Even a 'boot <cdrom-device>' doesn't work anymore, because it calls
flag 0 automatically
- What would help to get a 'clean' shutdown/reboot?
