I can fetch the full logs from the SSPLOGGER in case.. tho they are a bit
dirty but hey.. better than nothing. In any case now smp kernel can boot
but i have problems mounting the nfs root. Perhaps you can enlight me on
that as well.
rarpd/tftpd and nfs exports are correctly configured but the kernel
doesn't even try to mount the root (i can see that from tcpdump).
I compiled the rarpd and the root_nfs inside the kernel but i keep
VFS: Cannot open root device "nfs" or unknown-block(0,255)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,255)
<0>Press L1-A to return to the boot prom
I tried these options at boot:
boot net -p root=/dev/nfs devfs=nomount nfsroot=188.8.131.52:/e10k
with several combinations. mounting devfs, with(out) ip and with(out)
rarp, using also off and try manual config.
rarpd/tftp/nfs server is at .2
e10k is at .72 (host netra)
Let say this is the last showstopper for me atm... given that after
mounting / the system can recongnize the console.
