Using an initrd works fine for me, you probably just forgot to put udev in it. My initrd basicly looks like this: /dev/console /dev/null /bin/busybox /bin/udevd /lib/udev/firmware.sh /lib/udev/udev.conf /lib/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules /firmware/ql2200_fw.bin /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.dep /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla2xxx.ko /linuxrc The script I used to create it is available @ http://porno-bullen.de/~bluebird/initrd-qla2xxx/ but don't blame me if it doesn't work ;) Cheers, bluebird -- gentoo-sparc@l.g.o mailing list
