Re: Sparc32 Floppy Availability
I tested the version with the 2.6 kernel from
just briefly but enough to give some feedback
first thing I noticed is that I need to boot with:
linux root=/dev/fd0 (or some other root) otherwise I get a Kernel Panik that
it can't find a root
when doing this, at some stage I come to:
VFS: Insert root floppy disk to be loaded into RAM disk and press ENTER
but the floppy in the drive isn't ejected so I can't place in the new one.
it is getting late by now (00:48 GMT+1)
tomorrow evening (from about 19:00 GMT+1) I'll try some more with these
floppys and test the other floppy images..

You are invited to get fresh floppy images for sparc32 at
I realy would like to try to get my Sparc machine to run linux, but it
only has a floppy drive.
I'm looking forward to see your test report
