Do you have 4GB or >4GB? Modules do not work on sparc systems with
more than 4GB, but I thought 4 was OK. You can confirm by
a) making sure your modules are in sync with your kernel (i.e. not
compiled from different sources)
b) Trying some other modules to see if they work too.
(a) The system is a clean install from the ISO image, GENERIC kernel
etc. straight off the CD.
Here's the boot message:
Sun Enterprise 420R (2 X UltraSPARC-II 450MHz), No Keyboard
OpenBoot 3.23, 4096 MB memory installed, Serial #15737032.
Ethernet address 8:0:20:f0:20:c8, Host ID: 80f020c8.
(b) I just tried a couple of other modules (sound, fdc) and they
cause the same panic. doh!
so my labelling this as a IPFW problem wasn't quite right.
