This chapter is intended to provide solutions to frequently and infrequently encountered problems in enabling Linux on the JavaStations.
On systems that have the older OpenBoot version 2.3, and are not set up to use PROLL, you will get this message when attempting to boot up a kernel image that is not in AOUT format. Be sure to run elftoaout on your kernel image.
On systems that are set up to use PROLL, you will see this message when attempting to boot up a kernel image that is not in AOUT format. Be sure to run elftoaout on your kernel image.
This likely means you have a copy of JavaOS loaded on your flash SIMM. Remove the SIMM and the problem should go away.
There is a known limit of 8 MB when using the "Embedded-Root" boot image option.
The cause of this is the current version of the PROLL software, which map only 8 MB of low memory. Any more and banking support would need to be added to it.
This limit can be fixed if needed by someone, as the source to PROLL has been released under the General Public License GPL.
So in reality, the embedded image size limit is really 8 MB , not 10 MB. If 10 MB somehow works for you, it is by "luck"!
There are a few possibilities for this. Among them:
If you do X sessions to a Solaris server, and you find that your sessions are no longer opening up new windows, chances are the font server on the Solaris host has crashed. This is a known bug in Solaris 2.6 and 2.7 when you have about 2 dozen X terminals sessions running.
The fix is to move the font server to a different architecture and point your JavaStations there, or to upgrade your Solaris to the 2.7 11/99 maintenance release or Solaris 8 which both have fixes to this problem.
Congratulations! You must have one of patch numbers 107180-12 through 107180-19 installed on a Solaris 7 server. You need to upgrade to 107180-20 or above to fix this problem.
This was reported by a user after this document was first released.
In SUSE 6.3, using the tftpd from the 'a' package of the netkit rpm, you must be sure your tftpd line in /etc/inetd.conf has the -s flag. Otherwise you need to specify a full path.
Also, it is not necessary to run tftpd as root, so the suggested username and group for tftpd on SUSE 6.3 is 'nobody' and 'nogroup'
