I have the following message at boot :

Freeing unused kernel memory: 220k init 12k pmac 4k chrp 4k openfirmware
Warning: unable to open an initial console.
Kernel panic: No init found.  Try passing init= option to kernel.
Rebooting in 180 seconds..

if I give this argument init=/sbin/init it's the same.

Also hen I try to enable virtual terminual I have the following very early:

TCP: Hash tables configured (established 4096 bind 4096)
Starting kswapd v1.8
pc_keyb: controller jammed (0xFF).
pc_keyb: controller jammed (0xFF).
and so on...

Thanks in advance for anyhelp.

configuration: CPU 603e + Prep Board
