Hello,

Attempting to install Gentoo (from a 05/08/2020 minimal install CD) on a Sun Ultra 5 SPARC system. Upon booting from the CD, I come across an error when the squashfs filesystem is attempted to mounted.

Code:

>> Determining looptype ...
>> Mounting squashfs filesystem
mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on /newroot/mnt/livecd failed: Invalid argument
!! Squashfs filesystem could not be mounted, dropping into shell.

>> Welcome to Genkernel 4.0.7 (2020-05-10 18:32:47 UTC) rescue shell!
>> ...running Linux kernel 5.4.38-gentoo-sparc64

rescueshell /newroot #


Could someone shed some light on what exactly could be failing or where I could find a log file that shows some more information about the issue?

My system specs of this Ultra 5:
270MHz UltraSPARC IIi
128MB RAM
20GB IDE hard drive
IDE CD-ROM drive

Thanks in advance,
Austin

I don't no anyhing about Sparc but have you tried booting with:
Code:
ide=nodma

I never use minimal ISO's when installing Gentoo, however once you get dropped to a shell dose:
Code:
demsg
shed any light on the error?

Best Tango
