Booting the System

Bootloader Phase

The bootload will eventually display:

MAC address: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

If you wait or hit a CR, the Stargate will boot the kernel. The timeout before auto boot can be set in the bootloader. For example, to set the auto boot form 5 seconds do the following:

boot> set autoboot_timeout 5
boot> params save

If you hit any other key, the Stargate will enter a bootloader prompt and wait form a command.


To boot to the kernel enter:

boot> boot

Kernel Phase

After displaying various status and information messages and several pauses while the Stargate computes DSA keys and loads various modules, it will eventually display:

stargate login:

The password for the root account is rootme.

Shutting down

shutdown -h now
