Re: OS dies, Sparc server returns to Open Boot prompt
I think somehow I am sending a BREAK to it. Maybe it was a default
startup or shutdown of minicom. Someone from the list mentioned the
command "go" yesterday and I tried it and Debian does resume.

Subject: OS dies, Sparc server returns to Open Boot prompt
Sun Netra 240
Linux hostname 2.6.18-6-sparc64-smp #1 SMP Fri Oct 10 12:34:52 UTC 2008
Disclaimer: I usually run Linux on x86 but I am stuck at this time with
a Sun Sparc server which I know very little about.
I have a Sun Sparc server running Debian that may run for days but the
OS stops/dies and when I serial into it with Minicom it is at the Open
boot prompt and I have to tell it to boot.
Has anybody had this problem?
What was the resolution?
How do you trouble shoot this?
If further information is needed please let me know.
Thank you for your time in advance,
