Re: SPARC5 boot problems

  In chel di` si favelave...

> I've got a sparc5 with potato installed.  I managed to mess up the boot process so that I can't get it to boot from the hard disk.  I tried to get the OBP to boot the kernel image directly instead of silo, and then I read the docs.  My root disk is /dev/sda2, or /iommu/sbus/espdma/esp/sd@1,0 but when I try to boot sd@1,0:2/sbin/silo from the OK prompt it complains that it can't find the image.  The disk doesn't have a sun disklabel (does it require one?).  Can someone tell me what I need to try?

SUN Disklabels are required (you can read the debian sparc install
manual...), but also i (with a ss10, sun disklables both of the two
disks) i've had to mess up with prom to make boot.

I've to do:

	boot disk1

instead of the default ``boot disk'' (or boot).
