I'm trying to netboot my Next box, but I have a problem it is not
recognizing the file:
Requesting BOOTP information[boot]
Booting /tftpboot/boot.netbsd from mylinuxbox.domain.com
.unknown binary format
I checked the file and looks Ok.
[root@mylinuxbox /tftpboot]# ls -l boot.netbsd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1637059 Jul 24 22:33 boot.netbsd
[root@mylinuxbox /tftpboot]# file boot.netbsd
boot.netbsd: NetBSD/m68k pure executable not stripped
I ftp the file using binary mode directly from ftp.netbsd.org (I also tried
another file slightly older but I got the same results)
I'm using this on a Nextstation TurboColor (I'll get non-ADB components if I
can buy them), I know it is not supported but I think I would get a
different error at this point during the boot sequence.
Any ideas/comments? - help....
