Subject: [gentoo-sparc] PCI-SUN4V: strange virtual-dma size
Date: Tue, 20 Nov 2007 09:20:10
Message-Id: Pine.LNX.4.64.0711201106560.31614@lesbinux
I can't boot 2007.0 sparc64 livecd, the error i get is:
  PCI-SUN4V: strange virtual-dma size
booting both 2.6.17 and 2.6.20 kernels
With 2006.1 livecd 2.6.17 kernel i get the same error
and 2.6.16 - ERROR: Last Trap: Illegal Instruction

I saw there was a patch for this problem
Is there a newer sparc64 livecd that overcomes this problem?

  I have:
Sun-Fire-T2000 System Firmware 6.4.4  2007/04/20 10:13

    Hypervisor 1.4.1 2007/04/02 16:37

    POST 4.26.0 2007/03/26 16:45
