Hi.

I am trying install solaris 2.5.1 in a SPARCclassic from a
Sparcstation-20 over a network.

I have probe a intercactive installation. The actual situation is:

 client install: (SPARCclassic)

 ok>boot net - install
 ...
 hostname: cccccc.xxxx.es
 domain: xxxx.es
 root server: ssssss.xxxxx.es
 root directory: /cdrom/export/exec/kvm/sparc.Solararis_2_5.1
 SunOS Release 5.5.1 ...
 Copyright (c) 1983-1996, ...
 \ (rolling)
 \ (a seconds later, stop)

+++++++++++++++++++

 server install: (Sparcstation-20)

 #snoop -d le0|grep ccccc.xxxxxx.es

 ....

 It can't find krtld, and ... genunix, fs, swapgeneric, ... so on

 I find this files on my cdrom and they aren't on
 /cdrom/export/exec/kvm/sparc.Solaris_2.5.1/platform/sun4m/

 This files exist with another path.

 #cd /cdrom/export/exec/kvm/sparc.Solaris_2.5.1/
 #find . -name genunix
 ./kernel/genunix
 ./platform/sun4u/kernel/genunix
 #

 have i give you any clue about my problem?.

 The SparCclassic platform group is SUN4M

 Thanks for you atention.

 
 
 

1. Network setup - How to add network support after install

I mistakenly click "no" when I was asked if the system is
networked?  After the install and the system reboots, I
can't do FTP or use HotJava Browser.

So I add an entry on /etc/inet/hosts and a netmask entry on
/etc/inet/netmasks.  I believe somehow I have to bind this
info with the network card, which is a 3Com905 PCI.  Under
/etc directory, I don't see hostname.interface or
defaultdomain.  I can create these files but I don't know
what the interface should be.  Is it le0?  How can I find
out?  And how can I make sure the network card is set up
right?

And is there a GUI module like Network applet in Control
Panel on NT that I can work with?

2. Need help with samba...

3. Curious Networking problem: Installed via FTP but now the Network won't start.

4. Mounting modem

5. Network install of RedHat 6.1 with a PCMCIA Network Card?

6. DNS Problem?

7. Files for installing a networked NeXT laser printer under Win95 (Was: Black Next 2.2 + Linux != networking?)

8. Audacity crashes when I stop playback, except when I run it as root

9. NEWBE - Trying to install network card in Linux on win95 network

10. Strange problem, network doesn't work, networking stuff installed.

11. Suse 8.1 network install - cannot load network card modules

12. Installing Networking after initial Install

13. install over network without solaris install server
