Bug#43116: Sparc boot floppy doesn't eject
When attempting to boot off of resc1440-2.2.1.bin, the kernel prompts
for a root disk, but does not eject the current floppy. This results
floppy0: io-port xxxxx in use
and then the kernel panics because it cannot mount the root filesystem.
Ejecting the floppy from boot monitor does not fix the problem.
I replaced the default kernel with one that I cross-compiled from
2.2.10 sources, and everything worked fine. This seems to indicate
that the problem is with the kernel.
Was the ROOT_DEV specified correctly in the top level Makefile?
The machine in question is an Axil 320 with 64MB RAM, and ROM 2.19
