Can't boot a kernel under SRM
I got my SRM booting problem fixed (turned out I needed to set os_type).
My next problem is that neither IDE nor SCSI works on my LX164 system
when booted from SRM.
On the IDE side, I am getting a lot of "irq timeout" errors, and
sometimes I get "timeout waiting for DMA". The system might eventually
boot, or it might not.
The SCSI problems depend on which kernel version I try. In 2.6, it
locks hard. In 2.4.22 from the "business card" Debian-installer test
image, I get:
CACHE TEST FAILED: script execution failed
start=53c2ae64, pc=53c2ae64, end=5ec2a90
CACHE INCORRECTLY CONFIGURED
I have a Symbios 53c875 card.
The 2.2.x kernel on my Potato install CD boots -- and works -- fine.
However, my root filesystem is reiser and I use LVM, so this does me no
good. Suggestions are very welcome :-)
