Hi Folks,

I am just working my way through a few problem on the first install of Gentoo on my Biege G3, and one of the problem I am getting is an error on startup saying that /dev/openprom can't be mounted to /proc/openprom. I have checked, and /proc/openprom doens't exist. I have tried to mkdir /proc/openprom, but I am unable to create that directory.

Can the openprom be mounted on OldWorld hardware such as my Beige G3? Can anyone tell me how to fix the problem?

Thanks,

Andrew McCall

Well, openprom is a SPARC thing, I'm not sure how you've got it enabled. :)

Perhaps if you could provide your kernel configuration?
