Bug#413854: v880 sparc install problem

Package: installation-reports

Boot method: CD, netboot
Image version: sarge, etch, and daily netboot and CD images
Date: March 5-7, 2007

Machine: Sunfire v880
Processor: 4x ultrasparc
Memory: 8 GB
Partitions: nothing yet.

Output of lspci -nn and lspci -vnn:
Can't get the box to boot.

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Sarge images give the following error:
"error 256 stack underflow"
etch and snapshots just display "booting linux..." then nothing more.
adding the -p flag gives us:
Error: Cheetah error trap taken afsr[ ]
Error: TPC[ ] TNPC[ ] TSTATE[ ]
Error: M_SYND(0), E_SYND(0), Privileged
Error: Highest Priority Error() "Unmapped error from system"
Then a bunch of D-cache, I-cache, and E-cache errors.
And finally,
Kernel Panic – not syncing: Irrecoverable deferred error trap

For reference, the gentoo 2006.1 minimal CD (2.6.17 plus gentoo
patches) seems to boot ok.
