Help w/ 2006.0 on Ultra5

Chris Nolan-10
Sorry for the cruft, but I'm having an issue and I'm not exactly sure
how to solve it.

 I have an old Ultra5. It came without a hard drive so I dug up an old
100g drive and installed that in it. (Jumpered as Cable Select) Added
in my quad ethernet card as this will be a firewall once I get it
working.

 When I partitioned it, I created the Sun Disk Label and made the following.

 /dev/hda1  /   (512mb)  ext2
 /dev/hda2 swap (512mb) swap
 /dev/hda3 whole disk
 /dev/hda4 /usr (15g) ext3
 /dev/hda5 /var (15g) ext3
 /dev/hda6 /home (rest) ext3

I followed the 2006.0 doc and when it comes to the edit the fstab
portion, this is where I get confused. In there it wants a line for
/dev/BOOT but I don't have a /boot partition. Should I have created a
/boot partition? I was under the impression that the first partition
needed to be / .

I get through the doc and make my fstab without putting in a /boot
line (removed it) and reboot the machine and it comes up saying "The
file just loaded does not appear to be executable."

 However the kernel file in /boot is executable.   And is under the
3.5m for a 2.4 on 64bit system.


 Can someone please point me in the right direction as to what I'm
doing wrong?

 Many thanks.
  Chris

RE: Help w/ 2006.0 on Ultra5

Clonch, Christopher A (Chris)
A separate boot partition is not needed, and the first partition doesn't have to be root.  Make sure the /dev/BOOT line in your fstab is commented out.

I tried that. I just a fresh install and left the disk as is from when
fdisk made the Sun Disk Label.

/dev/hda1 /
/dev/hda2 swap
/dev/hda3 whole disk

I go through the whole handbook without issue and then when i
configure silo I get this error.

(chroot) livecd etc # cp /etc/silo.conf /boot
(chroot) livecd etc # /sbin/silo -C /boot/silo.conf

  label = Gentoo Linux 2.4.32-r6



Can anyone offer some insight as to what I'm running into here?  On a
side note I tried Ubuntu Sparc 6.06 that I found and it installed fine
and ran fine on the machine but I didn't like it so tried gentoo
again.


Many thanks.
Chris

Try removing whitespace from  the label = entry, e.g. Gentoo-Linux-2.4.32-r6

Oh, and   quotation marks like   "Gentoo Linux 2.4.32-r6"    also seem to
work.
