on the last weekend I've started to install linux on my good ol' Indy
(System: IP22; Processor: 100MHz R4000, with FPU). After setting up
bootp/tftp and creating a file-system I was finally ready to boot linux
over the network. After loading the kernel the system is giving me
>> boot bootp()/vmlinux
73264+592+11520+331680+27848d+3628+5792 entry: 0x8df9a960
Setting $netaddres to 192.168.1.5 (from server deadmoon)
Obtaining /vmlinux from server deadmoon
Cannot load bootp()/vmlinux
Illegal f_magic number 0x7f45, expected MIPSELMAGIC or MIPSEBMAGIC.
Exception: <vector=UTLB MISS>
Then a message that <return> is rebooting the system appears at the
bottom of the screen.
On server deadmoon I can see:
bootp():vendor magic field is 0.0.0.0
I have tried this with the vmlinuv that comes with hardhat, and with
several newer (prebuild) kernels (2.1.131, 990212). The result was
always the same. I guess that this has something todo with magic
numbers ? Is there anyone out there who has seen this before?
(System Configuration: Server running kernel 2.2.2 - connected with
internal net via 10Mbit-Hub).
Any hints welcome,
