Hi there, I've got 4.9-RELEASE running on my Thinkpad, and am trying to netboot 5.2.1-RC2.
The laptop has no floppy or cdrom; I'd previously managed to install a pre-release 5.2 on a separate hard drive, but it's pretty unstable, doesn't like ACPI, has trouble finding devices, hence the 5.2.1-RC2. I've been trying various combinations of tftpboot and nfs to get 5.2 booting on the thing--I have finally gotten the laptop to boot the contents of the 5.2.1-RC2 kernel and mfsroot floppies, and gotten to a setup screen: -> pxeboot include /pxeroot/boot/device.hints load /pxeroot/kernel /lad -t mfs_root /pxeroot/mfsroot However, no matter what I do, the machine inevitably freezes after a few seconds. There's no error messages, I can't get an emergency shell open, nothing. Can anyone give me some hints as to what I might be doing wrong? Has anyone gotten 5.x running nicely on a Thinkpad X31? Any ideas would be appreciated.
