SubjectBooting 2.2.0-pre6 on a PowerStack-II (Net 4000/200)
I have two Powerstacks, one of which can boot recent Linuxes, and the
other can't. The one that can boot 2.2.0-pre6 is the original
PowerStack with a 603 processor (67 Mhz, no cache, 48 meg of memory,
note this is a 603, not a 603e if it matters). The one that can't is
a PowerStack-II (Net 4000/200, 200 Mhz 604e processor, 512k sync. L2
cache, 128 meg of memory). I am able to run a version of 2.0.32 that
Gary Thomas built for me last year on both machines without problems
(though that kernel has some problems, which is why I want to run
something newer). I did the following:

make prep_config
make menuconfig
make dep clean zImage modules modules_install floppy

and tried to use the same floppy on both. The only dialog I get on
both the screen and the com1 line are:

loaded at: 00400400 00415FD0
relocated to: 00600000 00615BD0
zimage at: 0040A400 0049A889
avail ram: 00400000 00600000

Linux/PPC load: console=tty0 console=ttyS0,9600n8 root=/dev/sda2 mem=127M
Uncompressing Linux...done.
Now booting the kernel

(I typed in the root=/dev/sda2 mem=127M to the load line when it
paused to specify memory and disk). I really, really would prefer to
run a more recent version of the kernel on the fast machine (for one
thing, the 2.0.32 kernel has a tendency to spam our network every so
often when it loses the loopback routing, and a 200 Mhz ppc can spit
out packets quite fast, thank you very much :-).

Also, I found Alan Cox's patches 2.2.0-pre6-ac1 could not build a prep
based kernel (it kept trying to build the mac adb support and
failing).

Here is the .config file I'm currently using on the slow machine (I've
tried several different config files, including common support, etc.):
