Okay, I'm hacking the kernel to allow for initial ramdisks.
The approach I'm taking (after discussion with Ralf) is to use
prom_open/read/close() to read an ramdisk file, instead of taking the
ramdisk off of the tail portion of the boot image.
So, I'm doing work in linux/arch/mips/sgi/prom/ . I'm trying to do a:
But, I always get back PROM_ENODEV . I assume that means that the device
I'm trying to locate doesn't work.
I've tried all sorts of things, apparantly none are correct. I thought
that "scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(8)/initrd" was my best chance, but
it comes back with PROM_ENODEV also.
Anyone know what the correct syntax is?
