Package: boot-floppies

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

This seems to be an obscure bug in the kernel or the hardware.  I am
closing this bug.  If you would like to see this fixed, please bring
it up on the Sparc Kernel lists.
