Re: 'Illegal instruction' during boot
For what it's worth, I've tried a few more things:
1. My firewall (U10, OpenBOOT 3.15) will not boot the image indicated
below. It acts like the CD does not contain a valid boot image.
2. My other U10 (OpenBOOT 3.19) will boot the image, but hangs at
"Booting Linux" as reported before. This time, I was able to do STOP-A,
and get a ctrace. This is all that was printed:
Last Leaf: XXXXXXX from 4f1dec
0 w %o0-%o5: (408000 94 f0000000 ffffffffffffffff 0 30
I hope this helps.
If there's anything else I can tell you, please let me know.
Is there a newer version of the OpenBOOT code that I should be using?

Quite a few people tested the new silo (thanks a lot!) and reported
that it fails *after* loading kernel and initrd with 'Illegal
instruction' message, or just hangs after the 'Booting Linux' message.
Unfortunately, this is not the problem which new silo is supposed to
address, so it is only relevant if that's a regression compared to the
old silo versions - please let me know ASAP if that's the case!
Since we have so many people who can reproduce it, I would very much
appreciate a detailed report. It would be very useful if you would do
1. Use some CD image which can be unambigously identified and causes
problem. Include the download location and MD5/SHA1 sum of the image
used. I recommend using http://www.wooyd.org/debian/silo/sparc-mini.iso
2. Boot from CD-ROM until you are dumped to prom (after 'Illegal
instruction' message) or press Stop-A to get to prom if the machine
3. Issue a 'ctrace' command at the 'ok' prompt, and includ as much
output as possible with your report. Hopefully, this will allow us to
identify the problem.
