"HiAnyone care to shed some light on sparc64 installation help? I seem to recall some of the hardware had some quirks.
I have tried to install OpenBSD 3.2 to a Sun Fire V100 machine without success. The best I have achieved is to get shell prompt, but with my root partition read-only and I can not continue from it. And even then, when I do get it as far as shell prompt, it doesn't get there in every reboot.
A quite thorough explanation and detailed installation steps I have tried is available at http://www.iki.fi/too/obsd-fromsol-conf
I'd gladly see as many as possible to look at it and comment with ideas.
