Subject: Creating a network boot.img myself



Hi team,

Wanne build myself a new tftp boot.img installer for sparc64. For
getting all the drivers (and firmware) detected for 280R server well.

Did anyone document a step by step guide? Talking only about compiling
the .img part. Because done the bootp / tftp part before.

I am not gonna choose the .iso, (read burn a cdrom). Have seen booting
it with a kernel crash several times now. So first need to find out
what exactly goes wrong. The kernel, a driver, missing firmware, else?

Does the installer support ssh? So being able to save the debug screen.

Thanks,


Frans van Berckel
