Hello all. I'm a recent joiner to this list and hope to learn quite a bit
from you fine folk.
I have been having a bad installation problem however. I got ahold of a
Debian distribution CD about 3-4 months ago, and attempted to install it on
a 1.2g partition on my A4000 w/ GVP 68040/40 accellerator, 50mb ram, picasso
II, and 106mb swap partition.
The base installation goes fine, and seems to run fine, but when I try to
install the software packages, the same thing always happens. At some point
during the de-packaging, the computer will freeze, COMPLETELY, forcing me to
reboot. Upon rebooting, fsck will of course run. fsck freezes up during
the examination of my partition; and never ever comes back.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Thanks for any advice...
