I've got a machine here that I'm trying to install Debian on. Right now
it boots over the network but it does have a hard disk and I'd like to
install Debian on the hard disk.
My problem is that I can't get dbootstrap to run. I try passing yaboot
but I get this error:
dev_path = /pci@FF500000/ethernet@7
file_name = root.bin
partition = 0
dev_phandle = 001aa12c
device is a network device
of_net_open(dev:/pci@FF500000/ethernet@7, part: x00000000,
Can't claim memory for TFTP download
Ramdisk image not found.
ramdisk load failed !
I can, however, boot over the network using an nfs root partition and
then mount the hard drive with the base.tgz image on it. I was
wondering if it possible to just unzip and untar the base image and then
configure it manually without having to use dbootstrap. This way I
could configure the base system and then mount the hard drive as my root
partition instead of the nfs file system.
As always, any hints, tips, pointers, etc . . . would be greatly
