Description slickgardner 1999-08-14 23:56:30 UTC
Sparc 1 64 Megs Connor 1G SCSI DEC 1.5G SCSI All of install works up to the "Installing Bootloader" step. After the "Creating Initial Ramdisk" step, i get the message that there was an error in this part of the install. I've tried mounting the drives and running silo by hand to use /mnt/etc/silo.conf, but then i get a message that it cannot open the superblock on the drive/partition. This happens when either drive is set up as the root drive. I've tried starting partitions on cylinders past 1, toggling the mountable flags in fdisk, but I have yet to get the step to complete. All other steps complete successfully, and all files are successfully copied to the drives.

Today I meet exactly the same problem >_< when trying to upgrade my old Redhat 5.2 for sparc to 6.0 . Hey, why can't silo open the superblock ?

I'm still having the problem too. I haven't seen anything about it since i submitted way back when... if you want dumpe2fs or any other output or ANYTHING that will help, let me know... At least i see i'm not the only one having the problem!

Did 6.1 exhibit this problem as well? Please reopen this bug if you are still having a problem getting the Sparc installed.
