Hello All,

I'm currently trying to install Gentoo MIPS on an IP30 without
monitor (and hence no keyboard connected). Connection to the
Octane is made serially from a laptop running minicom.

I think, the machine (R12000 @ 400 MHz, 2 GByte RAM) boots the
ip30-r10k+-20050820.img image file correctly:

>> bootp(): root=/dev/ram0
Setting $netaddr to 192.168.0.70 (from server ) Obtaining from server 8520560+306368 entry: 0xa800000020799000 but there is no further output; probably there is no getty running on the serial port. Question 1: Is there an image that has serial console enabled? Question 2: What is the format of the .img file that is loaded via tftp - maybe there's a chance to add an entry for the serial port (what is the proper special file here?) in the initrd? Thanks, Karin -- gentoo-mips@l.g.o mailing list
