Description Brent Nordquist 2000-07-10 18:34:56 EDT
After an install of Winston Beta-3 on an Ultra5 (128MB, 8GB IDE), the boot process stalls at:

Starting NFS lockd:

The usual STOP+A (L1+A) doesn't appear to drop me back to OpenBOOT, so I have no idea how to proceed, other than power-cycling the 
machine.  I'm leaving it overnight to see if it ever recovers.

The only relevant details I can think of:  this was a custom graphical installation, and "NFS server" was NOT selected.  I configured this 
machine during the install to use DHCP... it is past the eth0 initialization so I don't know if that's the problem or not.  More details cheerfully 
provided on request, but this pretty much makes Beta-3 unusable on my Sun Ultra.

The little yellow sun on Tux's belly is cute, though.

Didn't recover overnight, so I'm assuming it's well and truly hung.
Comment 2 Brent Nordquist 2000-07-20 21:03:41 EDT
Brock Organ confirmed on testers-list that this is a known SPARC problem.  Sun 
themselves reported seeing it after their testing.  Without a fix for this, 
Winston SPARC can't really be tested at all.

This was actually glibc and kernel issue.
