[parisc-linux] Booting vmlinux.
Fri, 16 Jun 2000 14:09:24 -0400
I'm using a 712/80. I'll switch to the sercon. What would the default
speed/parity be? I did have some more success with sti, but I don't appear
to have a complete shell (ie -ls -mv) and I don't seem to have anyway to
mount or transfer files over. I would think I would use palo again to make
the disk bootable so I don't have to use bootp.
Thanks a lot for your help. I am new at this and appreciate all the
help/hints I get.

- Please use the serial-console for now, because the keyboard-support is
currently very limited with STI-console (=Graphics-console).
All following suggestions are meant for serial console:
- do you use ramdisk-20000530-sercon.tgz (gunziped in /linux-2.3) ?
- the best solution is to delete your /linux-2.3/.config-file and do a fresh
- do you have "block_devices/inital ramdisk support" enabled ?
- you need to have "character_devices/serial_support/console on serial port"
enabled and "console_drivers/STI_Console" disabled.
- major/minor of /dev/console in your ramdisk or nfs-exported tree needs to
be 5/1 (4/1 for STI-Console!) [That's the only difference between
- take a look at the comments in palo/Makefile prior building the kernel
- which machine are you using ?
That's all for now :-)
