Subject: IP30: Gentoo installation without monitor & keyboard
Date: Sun, 02 Mar 2008 16:47:19 +0100
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
