Reports indicate that a non-SMP configuration works perfectly.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

It turns out that the CONFIG_SIMICS_SMP_HACK was getting in the way on the real world Niagara. Without this hack, the system boots fine, with one minor glitch (the console service does not take over the serial console).

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
