Re: [Booting Linux on a SS2 with broken EPROM]
no I wrote to the linux kernel. Not to the specific one.
Unfortunatly remove the code is not a solution since I have only one
sparc and I don't have another one where to compile.
I got some infomration on how reprogram the eeprom.
Hope it will work.
Thanks a lot
