On a Sun T1000 I am trying to boot 2.6.20 using initramfs. (I use the same procedure successfully on x86_64 and itanium2 servers).

The relevent silo section looks like this:

So it knows about the initramfs, but then tries to mount a root filesystem instead...

I haven't tried this (initramfs) with earlier kernels, so I don't know whether this is a regression. Any clues about how to solve this would be greatly appreciated.

Does it make a difference if you embed initramfs directly in the kernel?
