The reason I posted to this thread is -- I did NOT have the described
kernel panic when booting os21 on the XO-1.5 with q3c08
> What make and model of USB Ethernet adapter are you using?
Do you think this matters? I have been using these USB ethernet
adapters for four years now, and have never had any problems using them
(on XO-1 and XO-1.5) with any build. [In the past I sometimes have had
firmware failures (particularly with q2b firmware - which sometimes
would "hang" in the firmware when I was trying to boot (unless the USB
ethernet adapter was unplugged from the XO before the XO was booted).]
> I could not hang a XO-1.5 with os21 & Q3C07 (included in the build)
I flash new firmware as it becomes available, independent of the build.
[Note that os21 boots fine on the XO-1.5 with q3c09 if I press the front
panel 'check' button -- it only gets the panic message if do NOT press
any front panel buttons.]
> Does your network provide network-based boot services ?
No. When I am using an ethernet-based LAN, that network provides __NO__
services - not even DHCP.
But I think this question is irrelevant - the described panic occurred
while trying to load kernel software -- long before the build would get
around to attempting any initialization of network services.
