I'm trying to netboot ultra2 from i386 running NetBSD, unfortunately i
don't have serial console so i'll type pieces from what I see on a
From openprom I boot by
boot net netbsd
and see how ofwboot loaded, BTW bootparamd responds every second time,
i see netbsd loaded, probes everything, among others it finds hme0
and finally asks about root,dump and filesystem. After getting
hme0/hme0/nfs it tries to get root filesystem and ends up with:
nfs_boot: client_addr=192.168.7.73 (RARP from 192.168.7.98)
falling into ddb shows stack shows that it's below nfs_bootparam
what is certainly expected.
Seems that bootparamd doesn't answer, and hme0 receives something
from the network. But I kind of stuck at this point.
One more thing: if I turn tcpdump on my i386 server machine then
I can't get bootparamd's response at all. Any advice?
Thank you in advance,
