In the category of "strange things a unix system should never do," my Ultra 5, after weeks of reliable service, stopped booting.

Silo reports "image not found" and dies. I can boot from the cd, mount all partitions, and chroot into a usable system.

Re-running silo with no options has no effect. Silo.conf has not changed.

Does anyone know what's up?[/b]

Do you have a seperate /boot partition? If not, maybe your /boot has been moved outside the 2G area...

I have a seperate /boot partition. :!:

grr

this all began when I tried something very dumb, anyhow...

Code:

vi /etc/make.conf -- add +java
then, the dumb thing:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~sparc" emerge -pu --emptytree world

gasp. How stupid, eh? Am I screwed or what?
