I've got a sparc64 machine - actually one of the Sun Microelectronics
AXi ATX boards.
I've configured it as follows:
/dev/sd0a - /stand0
/dev/sd0e - RAID (raid1)
/dev/sd1a - /stand1
/dev/sd1e - RAID (raid1)
On RAID I have
/dev/raid0a - /
/dev/raid0b - swap
/dev/raid0e - /var
/dev/raid0f - /usr
I've set up both stand0 and stand1 to be bootable. I've configured the
raid set for auto root but whenever I try to boot without getting the
kernel to ask for its filesystems it tries to put root on one of the
/stand? partitions and subsequently complains that it can't find init
which is no surprise.
What should I do to make this setup work? I'd really like to stick with
a generic kernel if possible.
