Re: network install problem - UltraSparc 60

Good day.

I've managed to set up working rarp and tftp servers on an x86 debian
laptop, and I see the headless U60 booting across the network via a
terminal server on ttyA, but eventually the boot process hangs. Here are
the last few lines of boot messages:

The boot server directory /var/lib/tftpboot contains:

C0A89E64 -->  boot.img

...which I obtained from


It's not a tftp trouble. Your U60 is able to find your boot image. You say that you don't have any framebuffer and output you have posted shows that kernel tries to switch to a framebuffer to attach tty0. Can you try with a frambuffer ? If not, you have to be sure that your boot image contains all modules required to support console on serial line. If I have more time this afternoon, I shall check on my U60.
