Geplaatst: Zo Jul 03, 2005 1:11 pm Onderwerp: I'm going to throw this IBM F50 out off the window :((((

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello;

I'm desperate :

I tried everything to boot an IBM F50 ( chrp ) with the cdrom ( 2005.0 -PPC version) with no luck:

Steps I've taken yet:

8
boot cdrom:\boot\yaboot

Get error :Unknown or corrupt filesystem Can't open config file

Continues with Welcome to Yaboot... and gives me the boot: prompt

Then I did:

cdrom:0,/boot/G3G4


It boots until:
...
NET registered protocol family 17
XFS bad magic number
XFS SB validate failed
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS :Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,2) Rebooting in 180 seconds..

... and he does



I did : cdrom:0,/boot/G3G4 root=/dev/fd0

VFs Cannot open root device "fd0" or unknown-block (0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS :Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0) Rebooting in 180 seconds..

... and he does it again

Trying with

cdrom:0,/boot/G3G4 loadramdisk=1 ramdisk_size=128000 root=/dev/ram1

Same error as first try, diff block :

NET registered protocol family 17
XFS bad magic number
XFS SB validate failed
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS :Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,1) Rebooting in 180 seconds..


Somebody got any suggestions, I'm tiered of seeing "Linux/PPC 2.6.10 Have Fun !" on the display of th server, because I'm not having fun

You try to boot with the included initrd. Probably that won't work on your IBM. Try with the following command:

Code:
cdrom:0,/boot/G3G4 loadramdisk=1 ramdisk_size=128000 initrd=/boot/G3G4.igz init=/linuxrc looptype=squashfs cdroot root=/dev/ram0


And thanks for testing! These machines are not officially supported yet by Gentoo.

I tried what Pylon suggested, thanks but sorry,no luck , same error and reboot as the first one:

Kernel panic - not syncing:Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)

It seems it has a problem when mounting ram , no??

I'm happy to contribute to the Gentoo community.:wink:

Hopefully I can write a nice howto on this subject, could be interesting to somebody.:lol:

:lol::lol:A little breaktrough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:lol::lol:

I typed :
cdrom:0,/boot/G3G4 loadramdisk=1 ramdisk_size=128000 initrd=/boot/G3G4.igz init=/linuxrc looptype=squashfs cdroot root=/dev/sr0 , now he has mountd the VFs as root only

But the next kernel panic:

warning:unable to open an initial console
kernel panic not syncing no init found try passing init= option to kernel

Reboot in 180...

Somebody ??

Oh, nice. Didn't knew that sr0 may also work...

First try with console=tty0 or console=ttyS0 (when you are on serial). But that init-warning is quite strange...

My 7043-140 gave me the same results. I'm kinda stuck in the same vein as eventhorizon. My gripes are in the 'Install on 7043-140' thread. I couldn't get a cross-compiler to work on my computers, so I'll be watching this thread very closely. Heck, not even Yaboot is booting up...

BTW, the 43p is a PReP-Machine. This is a bit different. And I'm working on getting mine booted by a LiveCD, but had no luck so far. Tomorrow I'll create another LiveCD and hopefully I can find some time during the next days for testing.

Pylon, I should have read the first post more carefully :lol: But yeah, I am fully aware of the differences between PReP and CHRP. If you want help in testing Gentoo on the 43P, I'm always available. The specs are in my previous thread. BTW, if you have read the thread, have you experienced similar problems as my machine?


Simon

EDIT: Actually it doesn't so here they are:

IBM RS/6000 7043-140 (43P)

PowerPC 604e @ 332MHz
256MB RAM
1x 4.5 GB SCSI HDD
1x 9GB SCSI HDD
SCSI DDS2 tape drive (4/8GB)
SCSI CDROM drive
Floppy drive
POWER GXT110P
some 10/100 card used instead of the onboard network
latest Firmware flashed

Pylon, how did your test LiveCDs go for your RS/6000?

Net booting is an alternative at this stage, I bit the bullet and installed Debian Sarge that way, with the help of:

- http://www.solinno.co.uk/7043-140/walkthrough/sargeinst/
- the vmlinuz-prep.initrd from the Debian mirror
- and a tftp server for Windows (I had to use my Windows laptop for this purpose).

Followed the video and now the machine runs smoothly. I'm curious on whether a similar method can enable me to install Gentoo directly. I also ask again whether you would like help with testing your LiveCDs on RS/6000 (well, on 7043-140). I'm no programmer, but the least I could to help out others with similar RS/6000s is testing... :P I'm on broadband, so getting the images shouldn't be a hassle.

EDIT: Grammar.


Simon


PS: new_to_non_X86: You can't do that in this model of PPC machine. Just the firmware. If you meant the firmware, that's been done already.

My nearly impossible to boot beige g3 needed all of the above (except loadramdisk=1) and also needed loop=/livecd.squashfs.

EDIT: I booted from BootX, so it wasn't quite the same
