Hello,


I have a couple Sun E250's which I installed Gentoo on. Every once in awhile a system will go down, and each time I console into the system it's at the "ok" prompt. I can never find anything any the logs or any type of core file. Has anyone else has this problem? Even if someone can tell me to log WHY it crashed would be nice.....

Here is some info on the box:

GENTOO VERSION:
Gentoo Base System version 1.4.3.13

LINUX KERNEL:
Linux 2.4.26-sparc-r1 #1 SMP sparc64 sun4u TI UltraSparc II (BlackBird) GNU/Linux

Running 2 (400) CPU's, 2 GIGS memory


Any other information you need, please just let me know.

Thanks for your time and help!

Steve

Does console always plugged into pc? When pc reboots it sends break to all serial lines so e250 falls to openboot. To prevent this try run echo "0" > /proc/sys/kernel/stop-a or change sysctl kernel.stop-a to 0.
