My new kernel never gets passed
Code:
PROMLIB: Sun IEEE Boot Prom 'OBP 4.0.45 2001/02/08 14:33'
PROMLIB: Root node compatible:
Linux version 2.6.27-gentoo-r5 (root@hummingbird) (gcc version 4.2.4 (Gentoo 4.2.4 p1.0)) #1 Sun Dec 7 20:55:28 PST 2008
console [earlyprom0] enabled
ARCH: SUN4U
Ethernet address: 00:03:ba:04:a3:b4
Kernel: Using 2 locked TLB entries for main kernel image.
Remapping the kernel... done.
The next line with the new kernel is
Code:
OF stdout device is: /pci@1f,0/SUNW,m64B@13:r1024x768x75
For some reason I don't know which option is missing.

The post seems rather cryptic to me though I do not use that architecture.

Question - is boot automounted or rather in fstab /boot isn't noauto is it?

On the off chance it is the same issue that bit me, I kept putting the new kernel into the mount point not on the filesystem.

It doesn't even get that far... those are the first couple of lines of the kernel after the bootmanager started.
