I just finished installing debian in my IPX. Well, almost.
When it is the time to make the disk bootable, this is the message I
"SILO wasn't able to install. You'll still be able to boot your
system if you create a boot floppy, but it won't be able to boot
without a floppy."
What could be causing that and what can I do?
Can you show me the partition map from fdisk?
You mean this:
/dev/sda1 1 102 49M ext3 /boot
/dev/sda2 103 899 382M ext3 /
/dev/sda4 900 6175 2534M ext3 /usr
/dev/sda5 6176 8104 926M ext3 /home
/dev/sda6 8105 8637 256M ext3 /var
/dev/sda7 8638 9006 177M swap
Also, switching to the
second console (ALT+F2) will show error messages more verbosely.
Does Alt+F2 work under kermit (I am using my Mac as console,
connected to the first serial port)?
