I just installed 11.0--p1 Release on a Sun Fire V245.  The install went
okay but then when I booted after install it hangs at:

I found this discussion:


I tried doing a hard power-off and booting the machine from a cold start
but it did not help.

Any suggestions?  Right now all I can think of to do is to try to build a
custom kernel on another machine with the ehci line commented out.  My only
other sparc64 machine is a U5 with insufficient disk space to build a
full-on release though.

Would I be better off trying to install 10.3 and then do an upgrade with a
custom kernel?  This is a nice machine and I would like to run 11.0 on it.
