Hi,

I've got a problem with an ultra 2 creator 3d (2x300mhz, 640mb ram).

auto-boot? is disabled so it should enter obp after booting up, but right after the "initialing memory" it freezes, it does not even show the ok prompt, just the banner.
if I abort/skip that memory init with stop - a obp works fine but i can't boot because it continues memory init right after entering boot cdrom.

if i set diag-swtich? to true it doesn't even boot, monitor stays black.

At first I thought it was one of the memory modules. I have 12 modules(32mb and 64mb). I tried every combination but the problem still exists.

Any ideas?

Not really a Gentoo problem, is it?

I recommend to look around on the Sun website; http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/home/index.html
