First off, thanks to input from Mike, I got my partition setup properly.
Here's how it's done:
In fx in IRIX, create an optional partition. This will create one huge
partition at the beginning (sdb1), and a volume header (sdb2), which you
won't use. It doesn't matter what type of partition you label sdb1, Linux
doesn't recognize either. All this means is you may have to force the
type recognition when doing a mount.
>From within an nfs-rooted Linux, I mke2fs'd it, and copied all the files
over from my nfsroot (esentially Ralf's root .cpio.gz).
But, here's my problem: I've take my old kernel that boots with NFS root,
and tried to boot it using:
The kernel starts, and it finishes off with:
sda: sad1 sda2 sda3 sda4
sdb: sdb1 sdb2 sdb3
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.
: Can't open
And then nothing.
What am I missing?
