I checked OpenBoot, and even tried the 'reset-defaults' command (after

I have a sparcstation 20 I am trying to install 3.0 stable onto, and
have a question. The system boots fine from the CD's, but it hangs with
a "no console found - try passing an init= option" error. I have a
GX-series SBus video card, and the only thing I could find after quite a
bit of Googling around is to use a serial terminal for installation. Is
there any way to pass options to the install kernel via SILO so that I
can use the Sun keyboard & graphics adapter for the system console, or
should I go buy a Sun null modem cable?
I installed Woody (= 3.0 stable) on some SS20 with SBUS and with onboard
graphics, never had to use a serial console ?!?
I suggest to check your openboot environment.
I don't have access to my SS20's until monday, if you still need help, feel
free to contact me.
