Hi,

I got a hold of a RAQ4 machine and want to put Gentoo Linux on it but, I dont know where to being. I keep reading and finding more not clear or dont understand the information. Could you someone explain to me how to get Gentoo on a RAQ4i machine? I put the hard drive in another machine and installed gentoo....everything I think works expect I get agetty errors and cannot log into ssh or webmin and dont know if its the kernel?? Again lost?

Thanks,
Rob

Well, here's my /etc/inittab which provides for the serial consoles and ditches the normal virtual consoles...

Code:
id:3:initdefault:

si::sysinit:/sbin/rc sysinit

rc::bootwait:/sbin/rc boot

l0:0:wait:/sbin/rc shutdown
l1:S1:wait:/sbin/rc single
l2:2:wait:/sbin/rc nonetwork
l3:3:wait:/sbin/rc default
l4:4:wait:/sbin/rc default
l5:5:wait:/sbin/rc default
l6:6:wait:/sbin/rc reboot
#z6:6:respawn:/sbin/sulogin

c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 115200 ttyS0 vt100
c2:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 115200 ttyS1 vt100

ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -r now

Oh, and I ported most of the 2.4.x Cobalt kernel stuff to 2.6.x. Only one real problem, soft reboots don't work (Power management issue, hopefully this will be resolved soon). http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=225557 if you're interested.
