SunBlade 2000 fails to netboot
I've got four SunBlade 2000s on which I installed Sid last year. However,
because of all sorts of lock-up issues, etc, I've tried to downgrade
Woody, with pretty bad results.
The short of it is that I've decided to see if I can wipe one totally clean
and start from scratch.
I pulled down the official tftpboot image from
Fom the "sun4u" folder I grabbed the tftpboot.img file and used it to
the SunBlade 2000.
It started to load, and then died with the error:
464c00 Instruction Access Error
ok Can't use is with (f0018f98)
MyyyyyyFast Data Access MMU Miss
and it dropped me to the OK prompt
I remember having a similar (same?) problem last year when I installed
these boxes, and I found a tftpboot image created by Ben Collins; I can
boot off that one still, but when it gets to downloading the root image
&tc, it can no longer find the site that Ben had up.
I was hoping to boot off the official image, but apparently it doesn't
work with the SunBlade 2000.
