I am new to Linux and a new subscriber to linux-mips.
I downloaded the RedHat Linux distribution that MIPS Technology
posts at ftp://ftp.mips.com/pub/linux/mips/installation/redhat7.3/01.00/
and I cannot get through the installation process. I can load and run the
pre-built installation kernel, but when it tries to load the prebuilt Linux
image via NFS I get the following error:
Welcome to the MIPS
installation of RedHat RPMS.
(CD-ROM, NFS) [CD-ROM] NFS
IP-address of target system:
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth0: unknown interface: No
Since I have successfully loaded and run the prebuilt Linux
installation image via Yamon, I know that the network connection is
working. Since this image is built to run on the Malta board, it
is odd that it can’t find the built-in ethernet connection.
I have attached a complete log of the console output.
Any pointers on where I am going wrong would be welcome.
