Re: Woody on IBM RS/6000 7025 F50


I've noticed something strange.

Booting my kernel from the net (bootp/tftp) and monitoring the bootup
messages on another machine by doing cat < /dev/ttyS0, I see bootup
mesages when I start from OpenFirmware with

0> boot net

but when I configure the machine to start from the net using the System
Management Services, I get no bootup messages.

This is strange; the bootargs are compiled into the kernel, and I supply
none when booting manually from OF.  How come the kernel behaves
differently depending on how it was booted?

Best regards,
