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
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
bit of Googling around is to use a serial terminal for installation.
there any way to pass options to the install kernel via SILO so that
can use the Sun keyboard & graphics adapter for the system console,
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.
