Fwd: OBSD 3.8 installation problem on Sun V100

Eric Merkel
I haven't gotten any responses on the misc mailing list. Since this is
sparc64 specific, does anyone have any ideas in regards to the email
below?

Thanks,
Eric

I've been stuck for the last couple days trying to get 3.8 to install
on this v100. Here are a couple more items to run past everyone.

Just for the heck of it, I figured I try to install NetBSD 2.1. I
downloaded the ISO and it installed with out any issue at all so I am
fairly certain there is nothing wrong with the hardware.

I've also tried older version of OBSD such as 3.7 and it also hangs on
"rd0: fixed, 6144 blocks". FWIW, on both 3.7 and 3.8 after it has hung
for a while, if I press the OFF button (but don't turn it off) it
prints the next three lines and then hangs again and goes no further.

interrupt_vector: spurious vector 7de at pil 5
root on rd0a
rootdev=0x500 rrootdev=0x3d00 rawdev=0x3d02

Does any one have any other ideas of what to try next? Would you
expect different results if I tried a NetInstall? Also, I do have a
i386 machine with 3.8 on it and this Sun Fire disk is just an IDE
drive. Could I take the disk out of the Sun and put it in the PC's and
extract all the sparc64 packages on the disk? What would I need to do
to install the boot sector if I do it this way?

I'd really like to run OpenBSD on this system rather than NetBSD or Solaris.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Eric

I am trying to install 3.8 on a Sun Fire V100 I had laying around. I
am not real familiar with running OBSD on Sun but have never had an
issue on i386. I burned the cd38.iso image to a CD and the system
boots but it hangs at "rd0: fixed, 6144 blocks" and never starts the
installation.

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

Thanks,
Eric

Re: OBSD 3.8 installation problem on Sun V100

Eric Merkel
Well for the record, I finally figured out why the machine would hang
on installation. After scouring the archives, I saw someone else who
had sparatic booting issues cause of the Mitsumi CD-ROM drive in the
v100. Apparently this has been a problem on the driver for this CDROM
for a number of years and is still there.

I disconnected this drive and hooked in a generic IDE CDROM and booted
the 3.8 installation and it took off without a problem. Everything is
now running fine as long as the CDROM that came with the unit is not
plugged in. Go figure.

Over & out,

Eric
