I am new to sparcs but I had the same problem last days.
To successfully install a 5.1-REL on a IDE disk I had to stop boot
when it counts from 10 to 1 before loader executes boot and do a
and then continue boot with
After installation you most likely will have to write
to your /boot/loader.conf.local
But it didn't always help. a pkg_add -r for X clients panic()ed the
machine anyway :(
I also did a cross build for HEAD for sparc64 because there is a patch
commited about this
panic: pcib: PCI bus A error AFAR 0x1fe020003f8 AFSR 0x100000000
I think but I couldn't boot the ISOs after I finished a make release
cycle (had to patch some parts of make release around /dev/md).
Always said 'Not ufs'.
I would also like to find a better solution for this to get the
machine stable so any suggestions are welcome though I will most
likely not be able to test anything the next three weeks.
