Anyone replace an IPX HDD and get rh 5.2 sparclinux to use
it?
The boot from cdrom weirds when I do so.
But sol7 cdrom boot works fine.
It works fine w/ the original hdd, but, thats only 202 mb,
argh.
b cdrom
It's weird, it uncompresses the kernel, boots, and when it
get's to the
cdrom, AFTER seeing the new hdd, a Quantum Fireball ST 2.1S,
btw,
I get errors such as the following after Partition check:
esp0: Disabling sync for buggy Toshiba CDROM.
esp0: Disabling DISCONNECT for target 6 lun 0
esp0: target 6 asynchronous
Device not ready. Make sure there is a disc in the drive.
sr_photocd: ioctl error (TOSHIBA #1): 0x28000000

Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 0b:00
Press L1-A to return to the boot prom

This is so weird, it doesn't happen w/ the original disk.
I have tried term on & w/ term off on the replacement hdd,
same error...

Have you tried Red Hat Linux 5.9 beta on your IPX machine?  We are
curious as to whether or not it has resolved your problems.
