K220 boot problems
I recently picked up an HP 9000/859/K220
that I would like to install debian on. Reading through
the list, I have seen other people with K-class boxes
have no trouble. Unfortunately, I am not so lucky.
I am netbooting the system using the lifimage I grabbed
which is dated 5/16/2002. Every time I try to boot, it crashes
at the same point with the following final messages:
parport_init_chip: initialize bidirectional-mode
partport0: PC-style at 0xffd02800, irq 88 [PCSPP, TRISTATE]
pty: 256 Unix98 ptys configured
Serial Driver version 5.05c (2001-07-08) with MANY_PORTS
SHARE_IRQ SERIAL_PCI enabled
WARNING! Stack pointer and cr30 do not correspond!
Dumping virtual address stack instead
<stack dump here>
This makes me believe there is a problem with the serial drivers
somewhere. I am using the serial console to interact with the system,
so I can't disable the serial drivers.
*Booting from serial console
*Firmware version 2.9
*No HD's installed (thought I'd get the installer booting before I buy a
*1gig ram installed
Let me know if anyone has any suggestions. As I am netbooting, it is easy to
try different kernels. Thanks.
