[parisc-linux] Booting 715/100
Tue, 24 Aug 1999 14:21:35 -0700
I finally managed to build a kernel from the 08/07/99 tar file.
Now I can't boot it!
I might need to update the source tree again but need
to figure out how CVS can operate through HP's firewall.
Here's the /etc/bootptab entry:
Where "/linux/linux-2.2.3" is the kernel source tree.
I also wasn't sure about the difference between
CONFIG_PA7100 and CONFIG_PA7300 in the .config file.
I thought the 715/100 is an older machine before 7300LC
was available and thus is PA7100. Is this right?
"lifls Image" returns
lifls: Can't list Image; not a LIF volume
Whereas "file Image" says:
Image: lif file
<sigh>...can anyone explain this?
Lastly, I've attached the console output.
