I recently installed OpenBSD 3.1 on a Sparc64. The install went smooth,
and everything runs fine. The only problem I've come across is when
it's booting, I get a prompt asking me for the root and swap devices.
Of course, putting that information in makes it work, but I need to be
able to reboot the machine remotely.
I looked around Google and the archives and found a couple of other
people with the same kind of problem. The solution that they suggested
was to build a custom kernel with one change in the configuration file:
config bsd swap generic => config bsd root on
wd0a swap on wd0b
I changed this, but got the following error:
bash# config NEW
NEW:19: bsd: can't make root device from `wd0a'
NEW:19: bsd: can't make swap device from `wd0b'
NEW has no configurations!
I was wondering if anyone could show me what I was doing wrong, or give
me some other things that might need checking. Your help is greatly
