Help with sarge and some new workstation and server
I need to test debian on a Sun Blade 2500 (UltraSparc III) and Sun Fire 6800
Currently I have a Sun Blade 1000 for testing. I tried many ways to install
and run debian with no success. As said on many messages on the list, CD
boot install does not work. I tried with a netboot install based in the
latest development tftp image and its works but I can´t boot.
My questions are:
Is there a restriction on witch partition must be the boot linux partition
with SILO ? (like first 8Gb for PC based machines)
Is there a way to create partitions with fdisk with netboot ?
How can I check if SILO was successfully installed ?
How can I create partitions for linux installation from Solaris 10
Installation wizard ?
Will debian run on the platforms first mentioned without any issues ?
If there are issues, can any give a list of common problems on boot, running
and stability of debian ?
