RE: 2.4 boot disk

hmmm... I have a 2-3 month old CD (jigdo image) that defaults to 2.2.20,
with no option for a bf24.

I downloaded the latest floppy images (3.0r1a) an couple of days ago and
they default to 2.2.20 as well, no bf24 as far as I could see.

I just finished and burned the jigdo of the 3.0r1 CD. I looked at the
vmlinux contained in /boot/sparc32.gz. I did text search for 2.4 in that
file. Nothing. A search on 2.2 returned plenty of 2.2.20.

The silo.conf only contains references to that /boot/sparc32.gz for sun4cdm

The sun4u 64bit kernel may well be 2.4.18.

I'll check on the Sun boxes when I arrive home this evening.

I have an SS5-110 and an SMP SS20 (Ross ROM 2.25), both sun4m.

Thanks for answering!
