MIPS32 O2 R5000

Regards.

I have a problem with a SGI O2, Mips32, r5000 machine.


I have downloaded the ip32-r5k-20040806.img netboot image, and I boot
from SGI PROM... but when it's booting it freez out, or the monitor
changes like a rainbow...

What can I do? What's the problem?

the last thing I see is:

>bootp(): root=/dev/ram0
Setting $netaddr to 192.168.0.10 ( from server )
Obtaining from server
7774342+160714 entry: 0xfffffffffa0711020

You are probably suffering from one of `kumba's shady ip32 kernels
(sorry, just had to throw that shot in there :). Try booting
http://dev.gentoo.org/~geoman/vmlinux64-2004-08-30.bz2, using the initrd
from http://dev.gentoo.org/~kumba/mips/netboot/initrd/ as your
nfsroot. You could also use a stage3 as the nfsroot for that matter,
but the initrd is probably easier.

Ahh now it's booting. But It says "VFS: Unable to mount. etc :)

What do I have to add to Boot param?

Now I boot with: bootp(): nfsroot=192.168.0.2:/home/wooh/install/mips/sgifs

sgifs is the initrd from kumba. What else do I have to add on boot?:)

You forgot to add root=/dev/nfs after bootp():

Don't forget to append either ip=bootp or ip=dhcp when booting.
