External SCSI disks with SS20
I try to run an external SCSI disk box (3 disks) with a Sparcstation 20
(Debian 3.0 Woody, kernel 2.4.18 SMP, 2 x SuperSparc II 75 MHz, no
CDROM). Disk array: Sun P/N 595-3769-01, three 2GB disks (one slot is empty),
narrow SCSI (50 pin).
The SS20 starts booting, linux bootup recognizes 4 SCSI disks: three times
ST32550N (external) and a MAB3045S internal 4GB disk. External: SCSI ID 0-2,
internal 3. This one is the boot disk. When I boot with the disk array
powered down, the SS20 boots without problems.
With external disks on it ends up with:
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:01
Press L1-A to return to the boot prom
spin_lock(f0209000) CPU#0 stuck at f00599a8, owner PC(f0027124):CPU(1)
... ( last line periodically repeated) ...
What is going wrong? Does my SS20 try to use an external disk as root
filesystem? Which device is 08:01?
Thanks in advance,
