I have an Indigo2. I have tftp/dhcp(bootp)/nfs configured correctly (I
think). I am using the hardhat-5.1-sgi.tar.gz distribution and the kernel
I am using the monitor commands:
unsetenv netaddr (dur to DHCP bug)
boot bootp():/vmlinux nfsroot=126.96.36.199:/home/jdyson/sgi-linux/mipseb
/vmlinux is a symbolic link to vmlinux-2.2...
I have the distribution in the mipseb folder (RedHat is a subdirectory of
mipseb). I think this is right.
When I run this the kernel seems to start up (finds hardware, etc).
Connects to the root filesystem...The last message I get is "Warning:
unable to open an initial console"
I have removed the graphics card from the machine (evidently the vx
frame-buffer card is a problem). I am connected to the serial port to get
access to command monitor, etc.
Anybody have any suggestions on what to do next or what I am doing wrong.
Thank you in advance for your time; and thanks guys for helping me get to
