Hi, I've installed gentoo on my IP30 SGI Octane, but I don't understand how to set up archload.
I've installed the kernel-image-2.6.19.1-mipsgit-20061224-speedracer-gcc4.1.1

I have
/dev/sda1 -> /boot (ext2)
/dev/sda2 -> swap
/dev/sda3 -> / (ext3)

my arc.fr
Code:
append "root=/dev/sda3";
append "ro";
ip30{
  working {
    description "Octane\n\r";
    image system "/vmlinux"
  }
}

I don't know exactly what are the dhvtool I have to do and how configure the PROM.

edit: I'm going to try this arc.cf
Code:

# ARCLoad Configuration

# Default settings;
append  "ro";
append  "console=tty0";
append  "video=impactsr:1280x1024";

# Octane definition
ip30
{
  description           "SGI Octane R10000\r\n";

  # Default kernel: 2.6.17.14
  # OSLoadFilename="ip30(linux)"
  linux
  {
    description         "\tDefault boot\r\n";
    image system        "/vmlinux";
    append              "root=/dev/sda1";
  }
}
