since my upgrade to kernel 2.6 ive had to reboot and SILO dies on the S......
My 2006.0 minimal cd will work, but i cant chroot to /mnt/gentoo to run silo from the root partition.

Also typing gentoo root=/dev/sda1 causes the following on boot

Quote:

Mounted devfs on /dev
FATAL: kernel too old
Unimplimented SPARC system call 188
Kernel Panic: Attempted to kill init!
Press L1-A to return to the boot prom


any thoughts or iso's for me? pleeze?

The Knoppix LiveCD, comes with an 2.6 Kernel.

Try this and probe if you can mount with this your Harddrives.

I'm not aware of a Knoppix LiveCD for SPARCs at the moment.

However, try Gustavo's experimental LiveCD at http://dev.gentoo.org/~gustavoz/sparc/experimental/ and see what happens.
