SE/30 Debian Potato Install Success!
So I finally got around to trying again to re-install
Debian Potato on my old Mac SE/30. This time I
successfully installed it. In rough outline, this is
how I managed it. I used part of the installer from
the Debian Potato CD-ROM macinstall.tar.gz.
To be specific, I used its root.bin, sysmap.gz and
rescue.bin files. I then used files from the
contained in the latest Woody macinstall.tar.gz. To
be specific, I used its kernel (kernel.bin), its
drivers.bin and drivers.tgz and Penguin-19. Results:
it installed just fine. The only problem I am having:
at boot, the kernel says that it can't locate several
modules. It doesn't seem to hurt anything, but I
would like to sort this problem out. Any tips?
My greatest mistake when I tried to re-installed
Debian Potato on my SE/30 was my mistaken assumption
that when I used the kernel and drivers of Woody's
macinstall.tar.gz, I also had to use woody's
installer, boot-floppies, contained in the ram disk
Thanks for everyone's patience in helping me sort
through the install. I have re-written my SE/30
how-to and formatted it in HTML. I will soon post it
on the web. If anyone is curious about reading it let
Thanks once again (Especially you Christian)
