Trying to get any livecd to boot up correctly and I keep getting some kind of miss then back to ok> prompt.

Any tips or tricks to get gentoo linux running on my Sunblade2000?
my OBP is 4.5.10

Heya. We keep missing each other when you IM me. Hopefully, you'll get this.

My understanding is that silo won't boot an OBP past 4.5.9. You can check out the current sunblade 1000 bug on the issuse at http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=25892

I believe Rob is in the same boat as you. He has a Sunblade1000 with OBP v4.5.10. In the comments, he mentions something about booting from debian. If you could get debian to boot, a gentoo install is just a few steps away. I think this thread should give you the guide lines for that once debian is booted.

The latest experimental LiveCD as well as kernel 2.4.22 no longer has the OBP 4.5.9 version limitation.

Which LiveCD did you try?
