Dies ist Thilos Unix Signature! Viel Spass damit.

gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314 (egcs-1.1.2 release)


After the system has loaded the kernel (via tftp) and found the root
device it panics immediatly:

trap: TLB miss (load or instr. fetch) in kernel mode
status=0x2, cause=0x8, epc=0x400238, vaddr=0x480d4
pid=1 cmd=init usp=0x7fffed48 ksp=0xc4867ed8
Stopped in pid 1 (init) at        0x400238:     sw      v0,0(at)
db> trace /t
PC 0x400238: not in kernel space
0+400238 (7f00,c4867f68,3378,7f00) ra 0 sz 0
User-level: pid 1

(Since it's diskless I can't do a crashdump)

I tried kernels made from the GENERIC config file, the R4000 config file + option
"BOOT_DHCP", my own stripped down kernels. (The GENERIC kernel runs fine
on a 2100 and a 5000/20).

Here's the ouptut of my custom kernel with options DIAGNOSTIC and DEBUG:

root file system type: nfs
init: copying out path `/sbin/init' 11
trap: TLB miss (load or instr. fetch) in kernel mode
status=0x2, cause=0x8, epc=0x400180, vaddr=0x80d4
pid=1 cmd=init usp=0x7fffed88 ksp=0xc4869ed8
Stopped in pid 1 (init) at        0x400180:     lui     gp,0xfc1
db> trace /t
PC 0x400180: not in kernel space
0+400180 (7f00,c4869f68,1a50,7f00) ra 0 sz 0
User-level: pid 1

BTW: I had the same problems with 1.5.1_ALPHA too, but by randomly
adding/removing devices and trying if it boots, I managed to get a working
kernel some way...

Try to netboot 1.5 current on a Personal DECstation 5000/50...
