Re: Upgrading openboot
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
You need to setup a RARPD to assign your U5 an ip address and also a tftp
server to serve it the upgrade file.
If your other system is a debian one then this couldnt be much easier.
`aptitude install rarpd atftpd`
Create /etc/ethers with the syntax shown in ethers(5)
Put the sun openboot upgrade image in /tftpboot and link to it with the name
coresponding to the ip address you gave in /etc/ethers except in capitalised
hex format. e.g.
127.0.0.1 == 7F000001
10.20.0.1 == 0A140001
Now this is set up you can power on teh U5, STOP-A before the bootloader or
whatever is started and type
The U5 will make a rarp request and the other machine running rarpd should
respond immediately (although it did take many attempts to get the response
on one occasion)
Then the U5 will load and execute the image.. Eatch the logfiles for debugging
Hope this helps, YMMV
