Dear best boys,
I built a used-parts-server on which 4.10 runs flawlessly, that's what the
machine was designed for.
Just of curiosity I tried -current from yesterday. Booting from CD ends up in
endless scrolling screens which show register dumps. If I press <break> at
the right moment I can see the following lines:
Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM
CD Loader 1.2
Building the boot loader arguments
Looking up /BOOT/LOADER... Found
After that the console gets flooded by register dumps.
When I press the power button (I set the 4-Sec poweroff delay in BIOS) the
scrolling screens stop for a second. I took a photo of the output (1.5MB!):
Also a snapshot from 26/04/2004 shows the same error.
On another machine the snapshots boots without errors.
Description of the machine were -current fails to boot of CD:
Coppermine 600, 128 MB SDRAM, VIA Apollo Pro Chipset (Tyan Trinity)
Promise Fasttrak TX2, ATI Rage Mobility AGP Card, em0
Toshiba DVD-drive on the VIA 82C596 ATA, no HDs on the chipset
The (working 4.10) dmesg of the -current-failing machine can be found at:
The one of the working machine:
Thanks for any investigation,
