Here is what I am trying to do:
I wish to boot a diskless sun 3/50 (netbsd 1.1) off of a solaris 2.5 box
This doesnt seem to be working..
i have on the solaris machine /tftpboot/C0A80102 which is the netbsd loader
program, and /export/morden/root (which is base.tar.gz + etc.tar.gz + sec)
and finally /export/morden/swap which is a 16M file
/etc/bootparams on the server is like this:
192.168.1.2 root=192.168.1.1:/export/morden/root \
/etc/ethers is set up properly, and all the daemons fire up nicely.
and /export is shared to morden (what I named the 3/50)
I turn the 3/50 on, and it gets it's ipaddress fine
(in.rarpd -da on the server shows two sucessful requests for the IP)
it then sucessfully tftp's tht proper netboot image, and executes it.
the i get:
NetBSD netboot [$Revision 1.2 $]
Requesting internet address for 8:0:20:1:FC:8E
^ is a twirlie thing, which sits there and twirls, and thats it.
rarpd doesnt see any more reuqests.
am i doing something wrong? (other than actually trying to USE a 3/50 :^)
any help greatly appriciated.
