Hi!

I'm still trying to get Gentoo working on my embedded sparc soc. I had to patch a lot including uclibc to get init at least working. But now it stops half on its way.

Code:

VFS: Mounted root (nfs filesystem).
Freeing unused kernel memory: 144k freed
INIT: version 2.86 booting

Thats it, here it stops.

When you built your kernel, did you do a 'make modules_install'? Check /lib/modules for a folder with the name of your kernel. It should have your modules in it.

If it's there, try this, and then reboot if complete successfully (should only take a second):
Code:
update-modules -f


If it's not there, cd to the kernel source directory and run make modules_install again.

if it's still not there, I'd inspect the scripts that came with your kernel and see where it's putting them.

I recompiled my kernel with everything built in and also made a modules_install. Additionally I enabled all debug options in the init-scripts I could find, and now another message appears at the end:

After this the serial console appears to be dead, but the system is still pingable.

I don't think you should need to have everything built-in. I think you should be able to load modules. If you hadn't done 'make modules_install' the first time, you could probably modularize many kernel features. That will reduce the size of the kernel substantially.

The synchronization of the hardware clock to system clock requires that you have the hardware clock set up properly in the kernel. For that, and your other question regarding the tty, I'm going to have to let someone else respond who is familiar with sparc. (I am not. I just spotted your question as being unanswered and tried to help out.)

If nobody helps you out with this within a day or so, you might try creating another thread with a more specific question about one or both of these next problems (kernel options for hardware clock and tty). Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Hi BoneKracker!

Thank you very much for your help.
As this is an embedded system I have no hardware clock. Hopefully this is not a problem.

No, just make sure you have any hardware clock stuff disabled in the kernel, and in the initscript (I think it's disabled by default in the initscript).
/etc/conf.d/clock
Code:
CLOCK_SYSTOHC="no"

or, if you are using baselayout2/openrc (which is unlikely), it would be in:
/etc/conf.d/hwclock
Code:

clock_systohc="NO"


I hope somebody that knows sparc is reading this though, because I know squat about that architecture. :?
