Bug#569719: cdrom: sparc testing 20100208 will not boot after CD install, stuck at openboot.
Justification: breaks the whole system
Installation from the three CD's for the Feb 8, 2010 build of sparc testing seems to go without a hitch.
The problem is that the system will not then boot from the hard disk (IDE). It only goes as far as the Openboot
prompt. I get:
Boot device: disk File and args:
Fast Data Access MMU Miss
Issuing the boot cammand at this prompt gets me back to the same place.
I can poke around the disk using CD-1 as a rescue disk, but can't see anything wrong.
Silo.conf looks alright in hda1 and vmlinuz is there.
I really want this to work because it will solve my broken mach64 problem with 5.0.4.
