Re: Scorpio Jr. Installation report
Please try this work-around:
Do a manual boot - boot xxxxx IPL
Using the built-in editor to change:
console=tty (however it is set )
That by-passes the "crator-on init_console" call.
The boot should continue until it ends with "unable to open vitual terminal" -
which may only mean a missing /dev and/or /etc/inittab entry.
If you find a way to get past the "unable to open..." message - Please let me know.
