Just looking for a little help here getting woody running on an indy.
My problem is once I boot the install kernel (linux), after the scsi snoop
and network setup, it all dies on the following line:
sending SDTR 011030130f0csync_xfer=2c<0>Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount
root fs on 08:01
I have IRIX (5.3) on dksc(0,1) and two free drives dksc(0,3) and dksc(0,4)
available for debian.
I have the following files located at / and /boot directories on IRIX
linux, root.bin, root.tar.gz, kernel_config, drivers.tgz
I have booted from the "maintainence console" (PROM) with almost every
combination I can think of - always with the same failure.
So... where is it looking to mount from? Do I need to make a new filesystem
in the root parition of the scsi 3 disk and push the kernel and root.bin
over there? If so, do I also then need to dvhtool the header on that disk as
Any help would be HUGELY appreciated. Thanks.
