Re: Bug#509178: installation-reports: sparc fails to boot 2.6.26: Memory Address not Aligned

Hi Folks,

I've solved this trouble doing a COLD REBOOT.

It is very simple:

Turn off your server, and disconnect the power supply cable. Wait about
twice minutes and then turn on the server. Before do poweroff, I recommend
change the default load to CDROM device in order to avoid boot from Harddisk
>From the ok prompt:
ok setenv boot-device cdrom

and then, 
ok reset-all

When the server has loaded, in the ok prompt:
boot cdrom

When you do not need anymore boot from cdrom, reboot the server and in the
ok prompt:
ok boot disk0:a
ok reset-all

Good luck..
