Hmm - thats coming from *_loadfile() in lib/libsa/loadfile_elf32.c, in
a section which is (flags & (LOAD_SYM|COUNT_SYM)). I'm pretty sure the
bootload on floppies is not supposed to load the symbol table to avoid
just such an issue.
I would assume that its failing in start_kernel() in
I don't have a sparc box with floppy to hand, but I could point you at
where to add some debugging (or put up a couple of debugging boot
floppy images) if you were interested in looking at this?
If someone actually familiar with the sparc and libsa code wants to
chime in that would be not be a problem :)
