Re: Can't boot SS2 from CD with 8.0, 8.1, 8.99

Would anyone be interested in trying to find out the exact problem so that
we can work around it?  Looking at the diffs:


the problematic code is almost certainly the block starting at line 207
in r1.19 where we read from the disk.  Adding a printf() before each line
in that block might give a clue as to exactly what is failing.  Knowing
that, there might be a fix, or maybe just a workaround to not try the RAID
boot on old sun4c PROM versions.
