--Later, I'm not sure if I needed the ide=nodma or not. At least when dealing with hda. I have an hda and hdc and I think the dma may be broken on hdc (IDE1). When booting to "2.4.20-2.3sparc ide=nodma" I kept getting "<hda>: lost interrupt" and my machine would hang. It could do it quickly or after a while. I ended up booting without the "ide=nodma" and had no problems running.

I could not boot the 2.4.20-2.31sparc kernel -- it would panic and complain about root being missing after several irrelevant messages about LVM. Even when I compiled the kernel myself from the SRPM file it would do the same thing. So I did the Aurora 1.0 to Aurora 1.92 upgrade using the original 1.0 kernel, 2.4.20-2.3sparc. And I did it WITHOUT the "ide=nodma" and it worked fine.

So now I'm running 1.92. I tried booting from the console and it panic'd right away, with the second panic that I could read (didn't get scrolled off) mentioning swapper(0). Unable to read and therefore copy/paste the test to anyone I scrounged around and found a serial cable and hooked it between the SB100 and my RHEL3 laptop. When I booted without keyboard and mouse on the SB100 (to force serial console) it booted fine. How strange is that?

I haven't tried booting again yet as this happened at the end of work yesterday. I hope to try again today.

I have a SunBlade? 100. It had a Sun Elite 3D Lite video card in addition to the built-in ATI video. I had to remote the Sun Elite 3D Lite to do the install of 1.0. Haven't tried putting that video card back in yet.

Also, had to use ide=nodma on install. Did not set up network automatically but just ran netconfig and it configured fine. Have not tested sound.

--Later, I'm not sure if I needed the ide=nodma or not. At least when dealing with hda. I have an hda and hdc and I think the dma may be broken on hdc (IDE1). When booting to "2.4.20-2.3sparc ide=nodma" I kept getting "<hda>: lost interrupt" and my machine would hang. It could do it quickly or after a while. I ended up booting without the "ide=nodma" and had no problems running.

Even when I compiled the kernel myself from the SRPM file it would do the same thing. So I did the Aurora 1.0 to Aurora 1.92 upgrade using the original 1.0 kernel, 2.4.20-2.3sparc.

When I booted without keyboard and mouse on the SB100 (to force serial console) it booted fine. How strange is that?
