I'm trying to make an x-term out of a pentium II/366MHz computer.
I believe I have successfully installed the operating system
for my x-term in the /usr/diskless directory on my server.
Configured nfs, dhcp and tftp and anyone of them works fine.
I compiled a kernel that includes the following options:
and put it in the /tftpboot directory.
Now, I started my xterm with etherboot. Etherboot recognizes
the network configuration.
Loading ROM image...
ROM segment 0x1000 legth 0x4000 reloc 0x8f00
Boot from (N)etwork or from (L)ocal? N
Etherboot/32 version 4.6.1 (GPL) for [3C5x9]
Probing...[3C5x9]3C5x9 board on ISA at 0x300 - 10base2
Ethernet address: 00:20:AF:39:55:F2
Searching for server (DHCP)...
Me: 192.168.123.37, Server 192.168.123.112, Gateway 192.168.123.254
Loading kernel (ELF/FreeBSD)... done
Now, the kernel loads, suddenly it freezes, and my computer reboots.
According to some letters in the list, I saw somebody suggesting
to add CPUTYPE=i686 to the /etc/make.conf file before compiling
the kernel. I did it but the result is the same.
Where did I go wrong?
Could you help me?
Thanks in advance.
