Re: Getting up and running (whoo!)


It boots! Or something :-) After borrowing some terminators from my
friend, I have the following success to report:

I've managed to boot my 720/50 using Linux 2.4.9-pa22 over the LAN
(with a make palo lifimage), using a combination of rbootd (for the
lifimage), bootpd (for the IP address and such), and the userspace
nfs daemon for the baseplus-20010404.tar.gz NFS root.

The boot-up went as follows:

bob login: 

Logging in as root or demo (I modified /etc/passwd to empty passwords)
just sits there, until you hit Ctrl-C 3 or 4 times, after which it
returns to the login prompt.

So this is where I'm stuck at the moment. The unaligned stuff also makes
me wonder... perhaps it is unable to execute bash?

What's next?



P.S. There aren't currently any SCSI devices attached, but I doubt that
makes a difference...?
