Description marcm 1999-05-23 22:34:37 EDT
I can't get a Sparc 5 to properly net boot from the
tftp32.img tftd image.

It starts to boot but fais with:

    RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block
    VFS: Mounted root
    Warning: unable to open an initial console.

And it just hangs.

Booting off the 5.2 tftp boot image work fine.

I can't duplicate this one on sparc 10 and sparc 20.
Comment 2 lars 1999-05-24 17:40:59 EDT
This looks like a duplicate of bug #2602.  I'll bet the user was
performing a headless install.
Comment 3 marcm 1999-05-25 00:25:59 EDT
Yep, headless install on a SS%
