Subject: Re: [suse-ppc] problems with initialization while accessing NFS
mounte d root file sys tem during the boot
I forgot to mention that I am booting Linux 2.6.8-rc4 - ... sure it is not
suse but perharps someone on this list is dealing with vanilla Linux too ...
I've managed to program U-boot bootloader and now am trying to boot my
PQ2FADS-VR board ...but I have problems with the initialization while
NFS mounted root file system ... .
I have NFS server running on my Windows XP Laptop (that is all I am allowed
have, no Linux hosts machine available to me ...). I copied entire
"fadsroot" directory from Arabella's CD-ROM into my
"fadsroot" directory on my D-drive and made this directory
nfs-shared-mountable (I have propagated permissions from "fadsroot"
down to all subfolders within "fadsroot" ...).
I noticed several errors during the copy process - complaining that I am
over-writing the files being already copied - is it an issue with "letter
case" ? - are there files on the Arabella's CD-ROM "fadsroot",
which have same names but differ just in the letter case used ?
Anyway I am getting the following error during the end of the boot:
device=eth0, addr=192.168.1.103, mask=255.255.255.0, gw=255.255.255.255,

bootserver=255.255.255.255, rootserver=192.168.1.100, rootpath=

My U-boot environment is:

Any ideas ?
