I am having a wee bit of trouble with installing slink on a Jensen.
Having been through many trials and tribulations, using the faqs at
alphalinux.org and ftp.digital.com i eventually have scrapped the idea
of booting from hard disk that both the faq's reccomend, and decided to
boot initially from CD.. which works nicely. However once I get to the
aboot prompt and type the following (which i think is right) then I hit
aboot>> /boot/jensen/linux root=/dev/fd0 load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ram
aboot: booted_dev='scsi 1 6 0 0 400 0 jens-io', guessing boot_device =
'scd0' <-- I guess this means it is booting from the scsi cd
which is fine
aboot: loading plain /boot/jensen/linux ...
aboot: unexpected object file format 137631
aboot: loading compressed /boot/jensen/linux ...
unzip : unknown compression method
<-- And here it has issues with the way the kernel is compressed.
then it goes back to the aboot prompt.
So.. the kernel compression seems to be the issue, but the kernel is
just the standard CD image one, the CD that the system has just booted
from in fact.
Am I doing something silly? Like not putting a parameter on the boot
command in aboot?
Can anyone give me some helpful pointers or even a complete set of docs
for the version of aboot which is on the slink cd??
Thanks in advance!
