Booting Linux on a SS2 with broken EPROM
sorry to disturb this list again but the linux kernel mailing
list seems populated by people that don't care that much about problems
Like I told them I've this sparc s 2 that had a broken IDPROM.
Solaris and NetBSD deal with that simply reporting an warning.
Why Linux simply halt the machine??? is there any specific reason??
How can I override the problem??
The error I get immediatly after the kernel is uncompressed:
IDPROM: invalid format type!
and then the machine switch again to the openboot cli.
I don't think I can replace the EPROM with a new one (are still
Thanks a lot
Debian GNU/Linux Unstable Kernel 2.4.9
