Description troch 1999-10-06 17:11:23 UTC
I have been unable to tftpboot the tftp32.img for RH 6.0
sparc on a Sparc 20 (SS20).  "TILO" is printed on the
screen and then a "Data Access Exception" error is
encountered and I am returned to the boot prompt (OK).
This happens with all of the tftp32.img files relating
to RH 6.0, its updates, and even the rawhide tftp32.img.
Although the tftpboot.img file from RH 5.2 does work.
The Sparc 20 is running prom version 2.25R, and consists
of two (2) Ross Hypersparc processors and 200+ MB of RAM.
